Hello Srikumar,
Love hoppers in general because they have very photogenical shapes. And yours with its red colouration is a superb creature. Fine lateral view and excellent composition. No problem for me for cut antennae.
Lovely shot.

Hi Srikumar,
really interesting species. I haven't seen it before. Amazing natural colours.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Srikumar
this is a lovely small insect that look so pretty in special color combination. The details are well presented and so lovely. I like the long curve antenna it has.
Well seen in good view.


Hello Srikumar,

You're capturing well this insect bya a good macro, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive this special insect with blak&red body and the long sensor/leg. You catch well by a good positioning the spectacle in which this insect is stopping on the tip of green leaf. It's also good capture for #WS.

Kind regards,

Ciao Srikumar, great macro of fantastic insect, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
