very nice one Hasan,
Welcome on TN, great first macro, I think it is a grasshopper, maybe you can tell it us and write a note by the photo.

A nice capture of what looks to be a Preying mantis.
Good sharp detail and good DoF.
A note on this insect would be useful,its equally as important as the shot here on TN.
A good one,very well done and welcome to TN.

I agree with Andy, this looks like a praying mantis to me(a female unless I am mistaken). They are such interesting insects, they make for great subjects in photos. I like how closely the color of the mantis matches the color of its environment, I guess evolution works... This looks just a little oversharpened to me, or maybe it is just a good size crop from the original. Good shot.

Very nice shot Hasan. It certainly shows how well these insects blend in to the surroundings. A note to go with your picture would be very good. Well done and looking forward to more of your work.

Welcome to TN. This is a nice macro of the mantid. Very clear detail and a nice POV. Thanx for sharing. Some notes would be usefull in future.

Bienvenido Hasan.
Por el mejor funcionamiento de TN, es importante que no sólo incluyas alguna nota acompañando tus imágenes, sino tambien con que cámara y sus valores de exposicion.
Excelente macro, gran nitidez y muy buena perspectiva.
Bien hecho!.

In the clearing stands the boxer, and a figher by his trade . . . from Simon and Garfunkel. I love these mantisis, the envinonment here shows him in full cammo mode, not easily visible for his, prey, which makes a good environmental shot,
