This time only a short comment - a lot of work before next trip this Monday...
Very nice picture with very good comosition, but what I like the most is - the object! Thanks to your pictures (this and some earlier) I saw this little Orthoptera larvae for the first time. I have to say that this is one of the most colourful grasshopper I have seen in my life! And its colouration clearly suggests that it has to be poisonous, as you marked in the note :)
Well, thank you for showing this lovely creature and I hope to see soon some other amazing Asian intects from you!

Another excellent capture showing this beautiful grasshopper or nymph on the pretty Milkweed. I like the diagonal lines in the composition and details are very sharp. Lovely colours and the green background makes it really stand out.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Top quality close-up picture of amazing subject. Both plant (with flowers) and insect are wonderful. I have never seen such colourful and beautiful insect. Technically and esthetically shot is simply outstanding. I am impressed with precise exposure and colout tone reproduction, great DOF and sharpness of the main objects, fine smooth and also colourful BG. Composition is spot on too. Bravo and my congratulations.
Hello Ram Sir,
this is a beautiful close-up shot with nice composition,sharp focusing and good lighting,you got a very good BG and lovely colours,

Great title to a great macro, Ram!
The colourful grasshopper nymph is well placed in relation to the Milkweed flower and the overall sharpness is excellent against an OOF BG. Your recent series of shot a joy to look at and this is no exception.
Best regards, Ivan

Dear Ram Sir,

A wonderful addition to your series. The grasshopper is exquisite with beautiful colors and details. I am sure that very few of us have ever seen such an insect. The plant is beautiful too - I love seeing the buds along with the opened flower. A superb composition of a fascinating subject.

It continues to be an amazing series of a small pesky creature with clothes like a lamb:-) to mix a few metaphors and leave some words out. Very nice.

wonderful capture of this Grasshopper. Color and compo are too good.
Due to the fact that I have been ill, I just could not give my comments to some of the lovely images that appeared and past me by on the gallery. Now I have such a lot of catching up to do so please pardon me for only saying
Splendid image. I only but appreciate this stunning photograph and it did not go unnoticed. Indeed a jewel you have captured. An unique display of colour and beauty.
