[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Orthoptera are an order of insects with incomplete metamorphosis, including the grasshoppers, crickets, locusts, and katydids. Many insects in this order produce sound (known as a "stridulation") by rubbing their wings against each other or their legs, the wings or legs containing rows of corrugated bumps. Their ears, located in the front legs, are interconnected in such a way that they are able to locate each other by sound.
Orthopterans have two pairs of wings, the forewings are narrower than the hind wings and hardened at the base. They are held overlapping the abdomen at rest. The hind wing is membranous and held folded fan-like under the forewings when at rest. They have mandibulate mouthparts, large compound eyes, antennae length varies with species. Their hind legs are enlarged for jumping.

Witaj Maldosiu,
Ciekawie spoglada, chociaz wolalbym inny kat zblizenia. Naturalne kolory , czysty BG.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel

Hello Malgosia,
Thanks for your kind words on my recent Odonata picture.
I had a look at your website and I must say it is impressive in both form and content.
Coming to your picture of Grasshopper, it is a very sharp and crisp picture of the subject from a point of view that justifies your caption. It does give the impression of a horse.
Very well done and thanks for sharing this great picture.

Hi Malgosia,
A quality image with excellent color, exposure, POV, detail/DOF, and comp.
I must say, I don't quite understand the connection of the title "horse" to the grasshopper. Do you mean the hopper looks like a horse? A bit of a note would help me understand, and be a big plus.
Well done,

Hello Malgosia,

Good comosition and nice pose from these insect.
Very good pov and BG.


Witamy z powrotem :)
Widze, ze nastapila zmiana sprzetu.
Bardzo dobra fotka. Ostro, wyraznie. Czekam na wiecej!

Czesc Malgosiu!

Bardzo ladne makro, ostre i dobrze oswietlone. Konik wyglada nieco ekscentrycznie z potarganymi czulkami :-) Widze, ze masz fajny obiektyw - jak sie sprawuje?

Hi Malgosia,
thrilling to meet the half hidden "horse" entering the stage on that elegantly bent leaf. A creatively seen, well approached, technically perfect, excellently composed image with a really good sense for the drama. I like the horse's shadow. With thanks, and best regards,

Czesc Malgosiu
Bardzo fajne zdjecie. Ostre tam gdzie trzeba i fajnie skomponowane. Ja bym dodal czarna ramke ale to juz bardzo indywidualna sprawa
Bardzo mi sie podoba
