Caught this Grasshopper mother with its baby in my fron garden sometimes ago. The motherly love towards the baby is really touching. All comments & feedback are welcome.

Hello Adam,
this is really a beautiful situation which you discovered. The unusual light adds to the beauty of the picture. It's a great composition in general. However, sharpness could be a bit higher and unfortunately you 'cut' some parts of the adult.
Best wishes, Peter

Hi, Adam!
Very romantic family picture with good and expressive light, the shadow of the small grasshopper is particularly interesting.
Well done!

Hi Adam,
This is an excellent shot!
I like so much the intimate lighting achieved here, with this great shadowplay.
It's very good the size comparison between the two insects.
Perhaps a narrower aperture would have been useful to get a little more of the big grasshopper in focus.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

  • Great

hi adam,
how did you do this? How far were you from this grasshopper? This is a fantastic shot, very hard to capture.
Great Job !
