Dear Arjun, nice one, seems to be a close crop. A little more space in the left would have been good. with best regards.vab.

Hi Arjun,
A nice capture of this grass hopper nymph. but this is not a painted grasshopper nymph because they are colorful all over the body You can find them in my archives. In my view the capture is composition wise excellent with great details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Arjun,
Nice composition and colors, very sharp. Good light and POV

Great POV, focus details, and DOF.
Nicely framed also.
Well done, TFS
