This I shot in the university ridge road park.
Probably this is the season for Grasshopper and Locust season. Probably someone who is interested in grasshopper probably can take a lot of details during this time.

Hi Ganesh!

Nice one! I don't like grasshoppers very much, but this one looks really good. I like its yellow/black colours on head.

Hello Ganesh,
A very fine macro of this interesting Grasshopper. Fine sharp details - I like the little spikes on the leg! Beautiful colours too that stand out nicely against the green background.

Hi Ganesh,

Our grasshoppers must have made a trip to Delhi - I haven't seen even one this year and we usually have lots of them. This is a beauty with the yellow face and stripes. Excellent details of the entire insect. Really stands out on the green leaf.


Dear Ganesan, A bit tiught frame, however a very good shot, and nice details of the eyes.
TFS with best regards.vab

Splendid image of this Grasshopper, Ganesan.
Excellent focus on the entire subject with fine details and colours.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Ganesh,

Instead of bold image could have given little more space for good composition, details on grass hopper are good. Also some how the tile doesnt go well with Nature pictures, I feel. TFS.

Hi Narayanan,
Very sharp close-up! The exposure is well done and the composition is great.

Bonsoir Narayanan,

Bravo pour ce gros plan. Le contraste est superbe et les détails sont excellents.
