Hi there

Can anyone put a name to this wee beastie? I captured the image last night at dusk in a field adjacent to a Salt Marsh next to the River Mersey. It was clinging to a grass stem but proved so docile (torpid? knackered?) that I was able to pluck the stem and transfer its occupant to a nearby Daisy for a better background. Any info would be most welcome.
