Field work in Kosciuszko NP (2)

As announced, another post from Kosciuszko National Park, although less opulent this time. Today we ascended Mt Stillwell and visited another locality in Perisher Valley.

A grasshopper; these guys are pretty slow and unconcerned by an approaching camera, so it would not appear as if they had to fear much up here.
