Superb shot - great detail and POV. I assume this was taken through glass - if so even better. However, at this hour of the morning - 'bonking' locusts!! ;)

Caught in the act :-) Very sharp and detailed picture. DOF is very good, too. I like side view of these insects. Expect another few millions of locusts soon :-)

This is real professional work, Joe.
The image is razor sharp and fill flash has been used to great effect in this shot.
BTW, thanks for your generous words on my 500th post.
Keep it up and all the best.

How sarcastic I would be saying "Happy Locust Mating Day". For a series in how pest re-invent the next generation of crop destroyers, this is a good show. The numbers in plagues always amazes me...I have not seen nor do I look forward to ever seeing such a swarm, Biblical in proportions! Perhaps learning a bit about their mating habits will enhance my own personal mental health, so that I do not feel too badly if someone comes up with an eradication program.

Sorry for delay with writting comment to this wonderful picture :)
I have to say that this kind of photo I really want to take! But till now without success...
Mating orthopterans are so rarely observed that it is very difficult to photograph them. You kept in perfect way both DOF and sharpness. Also colours and low (great!) POV are very nice for watching!
It is a very good work my Friend!
TFS and best withes!
PS.Why I always wanted to take such photo? Please feel free to watch pictures from my theme ;>
