[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

I was at my factory for the inauguration. I took my camera thinking probably I will find something interesting. It was really hot and humid and I thought twice to take out my camera and standing in the hot and humid weather with the jacket on. On my way to the canteen I found this fella sitting on the top of the lawn and staring at me. I had the full view and some time back I posted this colorful grasshopper. Hope you like this view. This is too close.. Thanks for reading...

Hi Narayanan,
The sharp details and the great colours right up to the end of the antennas make this a wonderful macro. The composition supported by the oblique lines is solid.
Best regards Siggi

Hello Ganesh,
you show an impressive portrait of the grasshopper not only because it's very colourful

Hello Ganesh,
Terrific, I'm glad you brought your camera long! I've never seen one in the colours of the Swedish flag before. Excellent macro showing interesting details and I like those antennae! Well done!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

A fine macro moment of seeming ferocity, Narayanan. The colors are exquisite, as are the textures, and you have quality foreground detail. Nice work with the point of view and choice of settings to control the depth of field.

Hello Ganesh,
An excellent close macro of the head and thorax of a colourful grasshopper. The sharpness is excellent showing fine details against the OOF natural BG.
It has the Swedish colours that have been given many interpretations but all are to do with the colours of nature in Summer.
TFS this beauty,

Hello Ganesh. Nicely closed in perfect sharpness and full colors. Regards. Jusni

Hi Narayanan,
These colors are simply awesome. The WOW came immediately to my mind when I saw the thumbnail. The close capture show us some wonderful detailsand it is funny to see the slightly angy expression. A slightly smaller aperture would have been nice.

Wonderful macro work.

Wow Ganesh,

You do have some awesome photos! This is excellent in terms of the colors and composition.
