Only I can tell this is a bird grasshopper. Which means at the time of flying they appear to be like small bird flying.

Hello Haraprasan,
Good lateral view of this bird-grasshopper which is obviously looking at the photographer. I always liked grasshoppers and find them very photogenical. Fine sharpness and colors.

Hi Haraprasan,

I've never heard of a bird grasshopper. Apparently we have them because I have followed them expecting to see a hummingbird when it landed but found a grasshopper. This is a fine macro with beautiful colors and excellent details. I love the patterns on his body.


Hello Haraprasan
a fine capture of this grasshoper very well presented, very sharp details with great focusing on his head against a blurred BG, superb colors
Very well done and have a good night

Hello Haraprasan !
This is an interesting and beautiful species of grasshopper, I had never seen it before. I like the touches of yellow, it's quite unusual. You have also managed to capture it with excellent details and clarity, with natural colors, in a wonderful composition and from a great POV. Very well done !
