Nice capture Iris,
Very neat looking hopper, love the patterned markings on this guy.
I think there are more species of hoppers than there are grains of sand on the seashore..close anyway ;}
Great detail, color, exposure, and well composed.
Well done & TFS!

Fantastic details and colours in this capture Iris! Nice composition as well! TFS!
Superb sharp and beautiful macro of a grasshopper nymph (the short undeveloped wings indicate that this is not mature) that makes good use of the low lighting.
The colours, POV and composition are excellent, all of which make this a delight to see!
TFS this beauty!
BTW, my TN name has to do with eyes - I would like many like the greek god Argos, the scientific name of which is used in a species of butterfly that has many small eye-like markings on the hindwings.

Hi Silpa, this has got to be one of the best looking grasshoppers I've seen. Most that I see are a dirty brown or green colour. This guy is bright with great colour, well captured on your part. The detail seen here is very good with very good depth of field to show us the grasshopper well in it's entirety.

Tall, handsome and very green, Iris :-).
Excellent capture of this Grasshopper clinging to something that contrasts well with the subject in colour.
Very sharp focus and fine details on the body.
Well done and TFS.

Your kind critique made me look at your very cheerful gallery. I'm a great amateur of grasshopper and insects in general and so your latest picture gives me the opportunity to make a little visit. It is truely an impressive hopper and a funny one with all these blacks spots and it is well photographed by you.
It is quite difficult to find out the ID of grasshoppers, also here in my country.
Thanks a lot and best regards

I like to watch species of insects which are not known for me before :) And this is one of them. Lovely colours of this grasshopper's larva, I especially like its camouflage character :)
TFS and best greetings from Poland!
PS. Thank you very much for marking my picture with Hyla arborea as your favourite photo :):):)

A splendid and impeccably sharp macro from you!
I've noticed that your close-ups all benefit from an excellent sharpness and attention to details but i've picked this one because of another very important quality: the bokeh in the BG (nicely blurred).
The texture and colors on this grasshopper are simply lovely and they contrast so beautifuly with the BG.
Very nice veryical composition and good lighting, too.
Bravo and TFS

I like selected for shooting subject. Broken stem and amazing grasshoppers create a wonderful composition. Quality of the shot is great. I like superb reproduction of all details of fine main subject (stem and insect). You managed to get perfectly smoothed and nicely coloured BG. As a result image has impressive 3D-effect. Bravo. Well done. TFS and best wishes.
