Hi Clint,Just seen your picture was going to turn off for the night glad i did not. a very good picture of the locust.where was he !
the shot is spot on focus colour dof all great


Bonsoir Clint,
Splendide portrait de ce criquet, avec une netteté exemplaire sur les déails de l'anatomie de l'insecte, embellis par les gouttes d'eau. Les couleurs et la lumière du support et de l'arrière sont magnifiques.
L'objectif est sans doute performant, mais ta maitrise de la macro est impressionnante. Bravo.

Hola Clint:
Excelente macro, con grandes detalles y buenos colores. Bonus especial: las gotas de agua.
Es un lindo retrato muy bien presentado. ¡Bravo!

I like the framing in this photograph! You should seriously think about sending this photograph to Sigma. It would be helpful for them! Well composed, and tack sharp! Well done!

This is incredible, and such an inspiration to me as I've just purchased a macro lens (although not this type). The detail is just razor sharp, the tilt of the head, the water droplets, the colours - I just love it.
Great work, thanks for sharing.

Hi Clint,

This is wonderful macro! Great colors and very,very sharp. I like the waterdrops..



I can't quite believe the detail here! Such a good viewpoint as well. A superb background and saturated colours. Really is a mint photo. In fact it's my newest favourite, congrats! The water droplets are priceless, really topping the photo off.
That lens seems awesome, I am looking at getting one in the future I will keep this one in mind.

Hello Clint
What a marvellous collection of photos you've got in your gallery, all so artistic and perfectly achieved. This one is really great. Did you spray on the grasshopper to make it? It's so cute with those little drops! Magnificent composition and excellent sharpness, POV, and beautiful bg (you will have to tell how you do it :))
Congratulations and TFS
