[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I guess this is a young specimen of a cricket, but have no idea of the specie.

The shot is taken in a cloudy day, with natural light and using a minitripod.

The flowers are very little. They grow on a stone out of moss, and form a beautiful subtle pink carpet. I was sure that if I waited a while some visitor had to arrive to such a beautiful perch, and this was the first and the last, as rain finished the photo session.

Hope you like!

I love the way he is perched on the top. Lovely sharp details and great colours. Nice DOF and POV



Wonderful macro image Felipe.
Sharpness, composition and exposure are great.
Details and color contrast are very beautiful and so are the well matching color tones in the BG.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards, Harry

Hi Felipe,
Well composed and colourful image...
Background and foreground are excellent.
Well done..

Hi Felipe,
Nicely composed shot with good detail as usual.
In New Zealand we'd call this a grasshopper ... our crickets are all dark brown,almost black.
I don't know the species though.
A great shot as usual.
Cheers Steve

Hi Felipe,
Awesome shot of this cricket perched up on top of these beautiful flowers. Very neat, sharp and lovely colours. Excellent POV, focus and a smooth BG presents a nice tone to the shot. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Hola Felipe!
Muy bella composición, me agrada mucho como se ve ese grillo sobre las flores chicas y de agardable color y como has elegido el fondo con las mismas flores pero con un desenfocado muy adecuado.
Felicitaciones, amigo

Terrific shot of this fantastically attractive scene. I like all at this wonderful picture. Unusual and amazing colour palette, perfect POV and great DOF. Razor sharpness of the fine insect and so beautiful plant and pleasant at high range beautifulness of the smooth BG. Lighting is really stunning. Bravo. Superb art work.

hi Felipe,
je n'ai fait qu'une image de cet insect mais elle date d'au moins 10 ans, celle-ci me rappelle des souvenirs. Excellente composition, aux couleurs vives et variées.


Delicado insecto con un color muy logrado.
Perfecto encuadre en esta fabulosa imagen.
Desconozco su ID.
Saludos amigo, JL.

Te votaría a casi todas tus fotos pero me quedo sin cupones para los pocos que me votan a mí. Equilibrio y composición de gran belleza y sutiles colores... en tu línea.
