Czesc Radek, widze, ze wybralismy podobna tonacje i tlo :-) Jak zawsze super notatka - masz predyspozycje na popularyzatora przyrody :-) 55cm owada to chyba troche za duzo jak dla mnie :-)
Zdjecie fajne, ostre i wyrazne, piekny, pustynny kamuflaz ladnie wyglada na tle z drobnych kamyczkow.

excellent detail and exposure, you can see how this guys markings really help him blend in with his environment. Very precise DOF and focus with, as always, very interesting and informative notes. What an amazing migration! This is a perfect TN posting, thanks for sharing and have a good day!

Fajna fotka i super zwierzak. Fajne wloski na nogach. Wszystko swietnie widoczne, ostrosc swietna. Podoba mi sie pokazany kamuflaz. Mozna by troche podciagnac kontrast ale z drugiej strony to mogloby popsuc te fotke wiec moze lepiej tego nie ruszac (Ale sprawdzic zawsze mozna :-)

Certainly a complete lesson. As to the picture, he is well camouflaged eh? It is like "Where is Waldo?". And yet he still sticks out in his sharp array. You have a good eye and the tenacious method of gathering information. Wonderful notes.

Wonderful shot of this 'little jumper', perfectly camouflaged and looking great. Very sharp image with the pebbles forming a nice BG. Spot-on focus and DOF. I like your low POV and the superb composition. Kudos.

This little guy is well camouflaged. You had a good shot. The grasshopper is in good focus and exposure is great. TFS this beautiful picture.

selam radomir , excellent macro shot and very good composition of this grashopper .nice pov with splendid colours.well presented pose
Well done my friend!
thanks for your kind remarks on the Golden syrphid pic.
As usual with you, the above image is very well executed and shows something really interesting. Well done, and thanks.
My guess is that you have Acrotylus, maybe A. insubricus (the two kerbs in the pronotum and the white and black spots on the body suggest it). I used H. Bellmann, 2006. Der Kosmos Heuschreckenführer. Kosmos, Stuttgart vor inspiration.
My best regards to you

A nice camouflaging grasshopper nymph. It mixes itself very well with sand. Nice composition and fine details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

What a little beauty, and perfectly portrayed in the sand!! Sharp details of the fascinating pattern and very nice camouflage colours. I bet it wasn't that easy to capture! Ivan and I had a period when we concentrated on photographing grasshoppers, it was hard work, not only because they jump away all the time but you really have to get down low on the ground too. So very well done! Interesting note too!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Radomir. Well, here is the cousin of Mr. Grasshopper. I do like this one. Guess it was hard to find him. Nice and sharp- Luis52.

I love shots of camouflaged insects and this shot of a grey grasshopper nymph well hidden in the fine gravel is no exception. Excellent detail and the sharpness allows it to show against the OOF similar BG. great use of fill-in flash.
Well done and TFS!

A great close up lok at this well camouflaged grasshopper.
Although this is a 'warm place' one,it looks very similar to some of our alpine grasshoppers.
Interesting not about the freezing Weta too.
I had already read about that in New Zealand Geographic.

wonderful close-up working on this interesting grasshopper that is presenting successful camouflage
i like composition, point of view, using of flash, colours, sharpness and details
thanks for sharing
Great example of camouflage here I must say.
Nice detail, DOF, and a well composed closeup frame.
I did a WS to try and make it stand out a bit more..or less camouflaged, whichever you prefer :)

This is a good shot because you actually realised there was a nymph there, because I myself would have no clue because of it's wonderful camouflage! :)
It has wonderful POV ad DOF, a great shot!
Another reason why I clicked on this picture is because I saw the word `Bulgaria`, and that is where I am going on holiday sometime soon! AND I AM VERY EXCITED!! :D
Thanks for sharing,

A lovely grasshopper with prominent details. I am fascinated by the size of the wings. I have read about it somewhere but ask me what is was, and I cannot tell you. I am glad to see that your grasshopper has a name. I am still waiting patiently as mine stays unidentified. This grasshopper is really beautiful. (That is if hoppers can be beautiful) The patterns are quite remarkable, but what attracts my eye the most is the fine hair on its body and the way it stands up straight and glows in the light. Lovely big eye. I like the surface you have captured it on, this together with the colours of the hopper makes a lovely combination. Well framed with good point of view and good focus. It was a pleasure to look at. Thanks for sharing.
