[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This grasshopper is coloured in green or brown with black spots. Its latin specific name verrucivorus means “eating warts” and is connected to an ancient superstition, that it is possible to remove warts with its help. For this purpose it is necessary to give to the grasshopper to bite a wart. Indeed, its jaws are powerful and it can to bite badly. It habitates in a grass on open sufficiently damp places: meadows, fields, wood glades, along roads. The adult insects are found since July till autumn.
Usually this grasshopper “goes on foot” in grass, but scared away makes long jumps: it is ordinary for it to jump to pair of meters. Pursued, it can make several jumps in succession.

Extra pyszczek ;) Szkoda ze czolo troszke nieostre.

Althogh DOF is a bit short on the head the detail of the mouth is amazing. Very good close up and POV too. This is how I like them, really big! hope to see more.
Thanks for sharing.

excelente vista del aparato mastcador de la langosta !!!!!

Good macro, Luke.
The DOF is little hallow but good details, nice POV and colours.
Well done.

Really close close-up ;-) Armoured head, nice details and sharpness. DOF is slightly shallow but overall very good picture and note.


To udało Ci sie zrobić na mnie WIELKIE wrażenie :-)

Very cool close up. Brilliant colours. I noticed your shutterspeed was quite fast... Maybe run a lower ISO and shutter speed ?.. less grain.

Hello Lukasz,

It is a good macro altough DOF could be better but I'm sure that according to the circumstances you tried to do your best.Anyway, keep up the good "work".

TFS, Csaba
