Beautiful shot of this Acrididae on the matching branch. Is that bamboo? Nice colors and details. It stands out very well from the background.

Bu tuhaf yaratığı buralarda da gördüğümü sanıyorum. Ama bu kadar yakından ve bu kadar net hiç görmemiştim. Çok başarılı bir çalışma. Tebrik ederim.

What an amazing beast. With those back legs, he looks like he could do some sizeable jumping. Nice sharp focused image with a perfect background.
Nice close-up and like the note but little software work makes it better . thanks

Salam Aleykum, Ridvan.
I used to play with this specimen when a boy and I lived in Goa, India.
Thanks for bringing back old memories.
Love the colours.
These fellows have a great "camouflage" mechanism.

This is a very good capture of an interesting insect. I've been looking at your picture for some time now and still have difficulties finding the insect's head. Actually it is difficult tell it is an insect because it looks so much alike a stick. Very good camouflage! I like the way you composed the shot by following the rule of thirds. The colors look bright and natural. Well done! TFS!
With Friendly Regards,

Hello Ridvan, this is such an unusual grasshopper for me. I've never seen one like it. The way you filled the frame with this shot works very well. I might have cropped a little more off the bottom even, but still very good. Your lighting is excellent. It would be easy to blow the highlights on this one, but you've maintained excellent exposure. The resulting colour and detail on this guy is excellent. Very nicely done.
