Yes! a great macro of Ollie, Jaap!
An excellent composition and DOF too.
And the sharpness is great on the essential.
An other very well-kept work: image and a magnificent note. We see where leads the experience.
Thanks a lot!

Nice one Jaap colours very good and detail well seen.
the note is exceptionaly informative, apparently the Christian missonaries are responsable for making a lot of people avoid eating this type of protein as they were made to believe it was not food fit for "Civilised" humans, so now people avoid them even when a plauge of locusts passes by removing all the vegitation, leaving them starving when there are tons of food on the wing. I believe they taste like shrimp (Never tried one)
again nice one Jaap

Jaap, ik zie dat u reeds met uw nieus toestel grote en mooie macro's maakt, opnieuw eentje om in de kast te zetten, het insect is schitterend van kleur, hier kom ik een stuk tekort Jaap, maar ik kijk graag naar mooie en goed gemaakte foto, dan ben ik in princiepe wel gelukkig.

The result is great Jaap. And you give us a very interesting lesson of economics. Your note is very informative, as is Robert Brown comment. Nice colors, good DOF and details.

Superb photography as ever Jaap, crop and framing are perfect, colours are good, textures are good. DOF is pretty much spot on.

Looking at him, dit he make good bait for the carps? he he!
Nice note, but brrr, not for me, not yet, maybe never! Bring on the steak!
Baie mooi sprinkaan, Jaap. Good detail on the wing and jump-leg too. The diagonal here works well!
