[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi friends in TN,

I picked up my camera after work rather late in the evening looking for subjects today. The insects were rather inactive and spotted this tiny brown hopper (~1cm)posing rather patiently for my shot. This grasshopper is rather unique with the compound eyes not as bright as most grasshoppers.

Thanks for viewing and best regards.

Hello Jusni,
Good macro shot of the grasshopper. Good sharpness, details captured and POV. Nice composition with the blade placed diogonal in the frame.The green background provides good contrast to the subject.

Hi Jusni, welcome back! Hope all are evrything going on well!
Great macro capture of this grasshopper from lateral POV in a fine composition with great clarity.
I also wish you a happy and healty NY of 2009 my friend!

Hi Jusni,
A nice capture of this brown grasshopper. The shot looks a bit OE due to flash I think but still then very good composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

A good capture of this immature hopper with curious looking antennae and subdued eyes Jusni, a good composition with perfect colour contrast, besides the razor-sharp image...

Hello Jusni !
He looks rather big, on your picture, even though it was only 1 cm long ! :-) You managed to capture him with nice sharp details, vivid colors, beautiful composition, beautiful blurred BG. It is really a strange looking grasshopper, he's different from what I am used to see in my own country.
Very well done !

hello Jusni

this is a superb close-up photography of the grasshopper
on his environement, shot with very fine POV and framing,
excellent luminosity and contrast, excellent sharpness and details,



Hi Jusni,
Excellent capture of this grasshopper; good POV and cmposition, sharp fine details, natural BG.

Nice diagonal comp and POV Jusni.
Great detail/DOF and framing, nice shot of this little guy :)
Well done,

Hi Jusni,

An excellent composition, also excellent sharpness and detail. The grasshopper appears to be a nymph, as its wings are not developed, so that might explain its unusual appearance.

I also have the lens that you used, and it is my workhorse for nature close-ups, I use that one more than any other, an excellent lens.

Hi Jusni.
It is really very attractive specimen of grasshopper And I cannot believe that its size is only 1 cm. Excellent close-up and very nice diagonal structure. Sunlight is amazing as well as rich colours of the insect and scenery. I also like wonderful reproduction of tall tiniest details of the plane and insects. Well done and TFS.

Salam Jusni,
a lovely composition of this grass hopper. the " belalang goh" as i used to call it, is very well defined in clarity and sharpness. the diagonal composition too is giving a good impact to the graphical aspect.
Nicely presented.
