Bonjour Claude,

Superbe photo bien composée de cette belle sauterelle. Excellent angle de vue. La netteté est parfaite. La couleur de l'arrière plan est idéal pour contraster avec le vert de l'insecte.
Bonne soirée,

Thank you for this excellent macro shot of a tettigonid grasshopper on a light coloured composit flower Claude, the lateral POV demonstrates the salient characteristics and colouration of the 'hopper nicely, and your chosen DOF renders the whole animal in good focus, but not the BG. TFS this my friend.

Hallo Claude
This is an excellent macro.
Very nice details, color, exposure and contrast on the white daisy not easy to portrait.
Very particular with a great focusing giving depth to photo.
Well done!

Simply superb. This kid of image is what many of us, including me, have forgotten about. It is the true heart of nature caught so good by someone so talented. I am lucky to catch this one today and thanks much for sharing!

Hi Claude.
Perfectly composed and framed close-up of a wonderful scene. You managed to reproduced a grasshoppers perfectly. Its details and sharpness are ultimate. Exposure of the shot and especially of the white flower petals is spot on too as well as nice smooth and colourfull BG. Well done and best wishes.

Salut Claude,

un magnifique exemplaire de Phaneroptera nana, la Phanéroptère meridional. On peut même apercevoir les "oreilles" sur les tibias antérieures! Quelle photographie, une merveille.

Bien à toi, Dietrich
