Hello Leonid,
Great picture of this so interesting creature to look at. Crickets and hoppers are of my favourites, because of their so special and archaic shape.
Like always well done, composition, sharpness..
The ID would be nice to have, but I know, it isn't easy.
Best regards

Your camera settings made me sit up in surprise, Leonid.
Of course, you have used the tripod too, and that makes this one of the clearest pictures of Grasshoppers I have ever seen.
Every detail on the subject is crystal clear and the colours have turned out to be very natural.
Well done and thank you for sharing this beauty.

Hello Leonid,
Fantastic sharp-detailed photo in a very pleasant composition. Marvelous pose and beautiful natural colours. The dark green BG is also very beautiful.

Hello Leonid,
Excellent close-up of this grasshopper showing all details perfectly clearly. Nice neutral background and good composition.
Best regards Siggi

Amazing details. This is a super macro shot for the details and the diffused lighting that you have produced here, there is no nits really but with great difficultly is i have pick one then it would be framing, the framing is bit tight, don't you think so!
