[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Folks , today I have a grasshopper , this one found on the river rocks was very cooperative in having its picture taken.

not sure of the exact name to this grasshopper I tried on my favorite id site , every name I tried had no image or write up , trying just a straight search I could find less common ones but not this type which is very common.

I have never found the exact name of a species to be all that important to me , but I do like to find them for my notes here on TN .

I find that even with a common insect it can be very interesting to photograph , to put the file in my computer and be able to view this small creature in such detail and magnification. I am anxious for spring to proceed a bit to see more insects and plants to photograph.

hope you like it , thanks for stopping in

Hello Art,
It is not easy to get a good shot at this dark and well camouflage insect. You did well. Sharp and clearly seen image. Well done and TFS.

Beautiful sharp picture of this grasshopper. Excellent composition. Good light and nice natural colours.

Well done, Art.
Good POV and DOF.

Hi Art,

Great capture of this Grasshopper. Haven't seen any large ones in UK, in Finland there were plenty. Good composition and sharp details.
