Grasshopper 02

A young grsshopper, eager to learn how to fly
has no wings, but has two strong legs
so, what is the different between flying low
or jumping high?

A green young grasshopper
hiding amongst green leaves
hard to see with naked eyes
but clearly visible thru an optical eye
of a camera.....

[Thanks to those who invent and/or develop this gadget...]

See more, love more.......

Hello Benjamin,
Fine study in greens showing a grasshopper nymph on a grass head in an excellent compo. with pleasing blurred BG that does not show the grasshopper well because its life depends on camouflage. But the grassppoer itself is pretty sharp with limited DOF.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hola Benyamin.
Una delicada presentación, con un BG neutro pero que no por eso deja de destacar este saltamontes.
Original POV y encantador BG.
Chao, JL.

Amazing close up!
A green explosion, really sharp and detailed.
I love the compo, DOF and POW.

Bel unité de couleurs. Le cadrage est intéressant.
Bonne journée.

Hello Benjamin,
Wonderful composition showing this little nymph very well camouflaged. Excellent sharpness and very nice colours.
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Benyamin,
Very good macro of this grasshopper!
Despite is almost of the same colour than background, it can be seen pretty well and with great definition.
You got good sharpness and fine details.
I like also the composition you made here with the inclined grass and the insect.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Benyamin,

You capture your little green frtiend well, good point of view and the composition is attractive!

Hi Ben.
Very nice shot you have shared. Its composition is simply perfect. Inclined stem and very nice grasshoppers on it are looked excellently. Sharpness and DOF are wonderful. I also like perfectly blurred and illuminated BG. Well done and TFS.

Excellent macro, you did a fine job of exposing the shot and separating the greens between the BG, grass and grass hopper. Nice camera work!

Hello Benyamin

Excellent DOF and POV.The composition is wonderful.Such a great range of green hues and tones.Nicely done.TFS


bonjour benyamin
bonne netteté pour ce criquet lŕ aussi,moi personellement je le trouve trop ton sur ton,mais cela vient peu etre de mon moniteur.

Hi Benyamin,
I like this delicate pic, all the image has beautiful green tone, I like as well the diagonal composition; maybe a less of space in grasshopper back could be better, but I don´t know if it could be possible, I´t only my opinion. Despite of all it´s a likeable photo.
Best regards

Hello Benyamin,
What a great shoot. Colors, details, BG, compo ...all perfect. Congratulations and TFS

Buen encuadre. Lo que más sobresale es el monotono verde en toda la foto. El insecto en paralelo con la planta y la horizontal de las patas dan un buen equilibrio. Una foto delicacada y elegante. Saludos Benyamin.

Wonderful shot of tis maco..
