[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Grasshoppers can be found almost everywhere in the world, except for the colder regions near the North and South poles. They live in fields, meadows, and just about anywhere they can find generous amounts of leaves to eat. Some types of grasshoppers will only eat certain types of plants. Others will eat any type of plant they can find. Grasshoppers can destroy entire crops of alfalfa, clover, cotton, corn and other grains, causing millions of dollars in crop damages every year.

Hallo Ram
Such a delightful point of view in which you captured this grasshopper, showing the back of its body beautifully. The details you captured here is well seen and displayed and I especially refer to the fine spikes on the paws and the stripes on its body. The green leaf as backdrop is super and is also a great frame. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

HI Mr. Ram,
Very unusual PV, but very eloquent view!... ;)

Hello Ram,
I like this unique dorsal pov of a grasshopper you have here. Almost symmetry with beautiful popping eyes. Pleasing natural tone and thanks for sharing.
Kind regards,
