Hello Laurens,
Very good macro shot of this grasshopper. Excellent POV and composition, working DOF, sharp details.
Best regards Siggi

Again, a beautifully executed macro capture of an acridid (?) grasshopper in its prime Laurens, a fine flash capture leaving the BG pleasantly dark. Some of the reflections could be prevented if you have the means of using the flash in an off-camera position. TFS this lovely image my friend.

Hallo Laurens
A lovely close to the eye image with lots of colours and prominent details to appreciate. The image as a whole is sharply focused, neatly framed and pleasantly presented. The light is pleasant and highlight the finer features of the hopper well.
Best regards

Hello Lou,
A fine night-time flash-light macro of a grasshopper taken from an ideal POV with good shapness where focused in the shallow POV.
Thanks and best wishes,

What amazing wild life pictures you captured in South America, Laurens!
This is an exotic species of Grasshoppers.
The point of view of really great and colours and details immaculate.
I like your placement of the subject within the frame.

This was a wonderful grasshopper series. Each picture had the quality of a textbook illustration. This one is superb with excellent colors and amazing details. I love the pose at the end of the leaf. Wonderful background and composition.
