hello has all.
I photographed this locust in my garden, it was posed on a flower of bay-tree not yet open.
The Locust of the genévriers -- Euthystira will brachyptera
The Locust of the genévriers attends heaths and the lawns limestones in Lorraine. The lawns limestones mésophiles with rather dense vegetation are the preferential habitat, while the rock grounds are avoided.
E. will brachyptera is limited in Belgium to Lorraine. The surface of distribution is the most septentrional part of a great field in French Lorraine and Champagne. Remarks It is about a species easy to inventory. It emits a weak very specific bourdonnée stridulation. It is also about one of the earliest species, singing already towards the end June.
It is characterized by its metallized green color, the atrophied wings of the females being pink. sources: www.saltabel.org/Frans/Especes/Acridides/EuthBrac.htm - 5k -

This is a superb capture laurent,
The details are nice, clear and sharp.
Good colours, lighting and exposure. The DOF is spot on and the POV is good.
Well composed and nicely framed.
Thanks for posting, have a great end to the week.

Nice and sunny shot you have done here. Everything is very well controled, and the blues & yellows play pefectly with the grasshoppers colours. I would have cropped the empty space at the left, but of course a personal taste. TFS!

Great clarity in colours, superb details!

En voilà une macro plaisante à voir ! Belles couleurs et bonne netteté, le ciel en arrière-plan apporte un bonus. Peut-être plus de place à droite et moins à gauche pour les règles de compo, mais on fait comme on peut parfois ;-)
Compliments mon ami !

Hi Laurent.
Very nice macro, excellent contras colors and details, good sharpness and point of view.Good note.


Excellent capture, good angle, excellent composition, beautiful color and contrast.

out your archve Laurent,
another marvelous capture, a well taken composition, with a very good point of view and a fantic shot. good job.
gr. jaap

Bon angle de prise de vue, Laurent. Netteté impeccable. Beau ciel bleu ;-)
Suggestion: Le blanc de la fleur à droite est un peu trop prédominant. Il suffit de le cacher avec la main pour voir la différence. Cloning or Cropping or Both? Qu'est-ce que tu en penses?

Sympathique criquet sur un joli fond.
Bonne journée.

Hi Laurent,
Great capture - this image has fantastic colors and contrast, well presented subject and good BG.
Very nice work!
