Walking on bubbles
Great to see you again. I like pictures with dew and this one is no exception. Very nice composition with delicate colours. Insect is detailed and sharp. Pity that DOF isn't deeper and we can't see more drops. Anyway - great macro and I'll wait for wet d-flies :-)
One question - I'm also going to take similiar pictures with dew on insect - how early I should go to meadow?

Hm, o fotografie interesanta, si nu cu libelule! O sa incerc sa nu folosesc cuvinte pompoase, ca sa nu dau impresia ca ma dau mare si asa cum vad eu imaginea. Imi place senzatia de perspectiva care e data de faptul ca ai plasat greierasul undeva mai in spate,iar picaturile de roua par undeva in fata, in focus doar un sirag subtire, care trece dintr-o parte in alta a fotografiei.Chiar si una din antene pare paralele cu suportul pe care statea. Frumos si simplu de altfel!
Numai bine, Oana

Minefield..a word I only hear of on TV...at any rate it makes for a very unusual image...one which takes a bit of thinking....quite the damp weather...so the image also passes beyond its simple focus of a grasshopper with extra long antenna, to the dew drops and complex formations...a picture worthy of some thought!

Fantastic and original photo. The POV is really perfect. Excellent colours, also in the OOF BG. The sharp focus on the grasshopper is very good.

Really cool shot! The bubble texture makes this even more of an interesting photo. Exposure seems right on the money. :)

It is very interesting but there are many tiny grasshoppers in our places this year. Many of them have different coloration. I think these are different species too. You have pictured yours at so attractive scenery. Necklace from dew is amazing and form a stunning stage for tiny beauty. I also like soft lighting and almost neutral smooth BG. POV is also brilliant as well as the composition of the shot. Well done and TFS. And many thanks for nice comments. All of them are great always.

imi place imaginea. nu am mai vazut ceva de genul. numai ca subiectul fiind mic se pierde din frumusete. magia fotografiei macro este ca poti vedea detalii care in mod normal nu le vezi.
daca vrei poti sa iti faci galerie pe fotonatura.ro . acolo nu este limita la rezolutia imaginilor.

I'm back! :-)
Missed this site too much lol.
Fantastic shot mate!
The composition is very good.
Great detail and clarity and lovely, soft light.
I love the minimal colour as well.
Very fine work, Horia!
P.S. Did you get the my reply to your previous email? I think my email's been having problems :-S

Hello Horia, beautiful capture. Like the razor sharp focus, DOF, composition and natural colors.

An superb artistic capture of a species of Bush Cricket because of the long antennae. This early nymph stage makes the ID difficult but looks like it is a species of Conocephalus, probably discolor
+: Sharpness, DOF, pose, POV, BG, composition, colours and lighting.
-: none, nice that you were able to include the long antennae, one with fine sharpness with the low light.
Thanks and best regards,
