[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
This grasshopper called "barbitiste ventru" in french. It is a "mountain" grasshopper and not so easy to see because of its color in the grass. I had luck to see one on a stone.

A very nice capture.
Excellent colours and very good sharp detail.
Composition and DoF are great also.
Very well done.

Excellent capture, great sharpness and DOF, nice colours, and you were indeed lucky to see it sitting on a stone, so as to get it set off nicely against the background.

Lovely Chantal,
great capture you did here, fantastic composition, good sharp, very good colours, lovely dof, very good job Chantal, with my compliments.

Very nice capture of this hopper. Very sharp and clear indeed. I see he is still a trotter. Great work. Thanx Chantal.

Chantal, WOW! great shot wit an impressive DOF. High quality shot.
Greetings, Jan

How could I miss this one. This is really a second to none with no nit at all. Perfect composition, great dof and wonderful colours. - Well there might be a little ni - a more informative note about the habitats etc. would have been very nice.

La netteté est parfaitement maîtrisée et la pdc est elle aussi remarquable.
C'est vrai que dans ces pâturages ça grouille de sauterelles.
Merci de partager Chantal.
