Hello Szabo,

These grasshoppers are not easy to capture & you have made an exceptional composition here. The colors are of the purest form & the black plant prop gives terrific contrast to this predominately green hued image. Super sharp focus & a choice POV as well!

Hello Jozsef,
Very interesting creature this Miramella alpina which you show with this powerful picture. Beautiful light too. I would eventually have chosen another composition, in the sens not to have behind the hopper so much space.
Kind regards
