[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was a bug which could jump quite high as ci could see. Here now and gone the next second. Strong legs. Antennae twitching constantly, very alert. Did a minimal crop to take out some grass shoots.

Hello Kiran,
you show us a very nice picture of an interesting insect. You focused exactly and in spite of movement on of the very long antennae is shown clearly over their entire length. Colours, light and general composition are pleasant.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Kiran.
Wonderful subject, impressive 3D-image, great POV. Framing and composition. I like clear rich colours, excellent lighting and perfect BG. Only I suppose the wider DOF would be better. You could use higher ISO speed and smaller f-number. In such case all image of so charming insect (I mean its far leg) would be extremely sharp. Bravo and TFS.

Hello Kiran,
Sharp. Good composition. Interesting content.
