[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This new born grasshopper (Tettigonia viridissima, I think) has landed on a tiny spider's web. Each of the actors is roughly 1.5 mm long, with the grasshopper being approx the size of an aphid.
The picture has been much cropped.

Poor little jumper! I bet it takes a while to die from a bite in the leg. I'm glad you got so far with the ID, I find grasshopper and cricket nymphs bloody hard work to ID. I have a nymph from yesterday and I have got nowhere with it.

I wonder what the spider ID is? I'll have a go at looking it up, later.

This is a great capture Philippe, got the action and very well done for getting them both in the DOF for such small beasts. Great shot.

You got a very good Dof here Philippe. Very interesting capture of this two tiny insects.
Very good colors too.
Well done.

Superbe photo Philippe !
De très belles couleurs pour une scène de la nature excellente.
Bravo !

Great picture, Philippe.
Very good colours, great details, DOF and well composed.
Excellent work.

Great shot Philippe!
Extremely interesting shot. Great details as for such tiny models. Good POV and composition.
I like it very much.
Well done!

Scène quotidienne de la lutte pour la vie, mais il fallait la voir et surtout la photographier aussi bien. C'est vraiment parfait, instructif et très bien détaillé. Bravo, Philippe.

Belle et intéressante composition macro-photographique bien réalisée pour ces insectes. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté.
Very Well Done !

Great action shot, wonderful DOF. A person like u should come to India to shoot the myriad insect variety we have here. Just backpack and land up in Calcutta, I'm here to extend all possible help. Cheers

Très spectaculaire ! Ces scènes de prédation me fascinent et tu as vraiment saisi l'action. La qualité de l'image me parait très correcte malgré le crop.
