I'm not sure what species of grasshopper this is but once I do, I'll put a better note in about it. :)

Thankyou for your comments.

Hello Joe,
Nice sharp macro against the light showing good detail and set in a fine composition with good contrasting BG.
I think this Corthippus brunneus, the Field Grasshoppper. It is very variable in pattern and colouring, but the shot is sharp enough to be able to ID it.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

selam joe, excellent macro shot and very good composition of this grasshopper nice pov and bg with splendid colours. Well done ! Regards ridvan

Yup! It is a grasshopper all right. Focused enough I can almost see an expression on it's face! You seem to like those pesky little critters...There is a company in the US...not sure if it is an import, called Reese's...I think, which sells these insects. Long story...


I like the lighting effect here...makes the grasshopper seem a little "Alfred Hitchcock". :)
Great details!

Hi Joe

That is a fine looking grasshopper. Lovely colour, the dark BG sets it off. Excellent POV.

Where did that lovely sunshine comes from? It almost looks like summer and I am sure we haven't had one of those this year



Hi Joe, splendid grassopper with wonderful details and great sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Joe,
A beautifully colored grasshopper. Very good details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Joe,

Excellent macro of this grasshopper. I like the way the sun spotlights the face showing it pretty clearly. Good colors and pose.
