There's a few seconds left of #MacroMonday here in the UK so I thought I'd sneak in one more...

This is a poisonous grasshopper from Madagascar. This particular one is a juvenile, however even when fully grown the males wings stay very small and they are unable to fly. The female's wings grow bigger and they are able to fly just fine apparently. My guide was unable to explain why this was... anyone care to hazard a guess?
