Not identified grasshopper

One of the most unpleasant things which can arrive to a photographer it is that his equipment is taken by a robber.
That arrived to me last Saturday. Camera and all its accessories, flown away. I wish that similar thing never happen to you.
At 55 years, I have the appearance of a child with whom one removed his preferred toy. And as a child I am sad. More especially as today we have a beautiful sunny day. I will feel better in a few days...

Thank you for looking.

Man!!!! that sucks!!!!!!
I feel for you friend, sorry to hear about the bad news.

Excelent shot of the Acrididae, Lucanus durochericus. ;) :)
I've named it for you, Luc. Now it has a name.
Excelent work.


Great post my friend! Very good details and DOF in your hopper..I'm greatly saddened by this. Hang in there my friend..

Oh Luc! I am truly sorry to hear about your misfortune. Is there anything that anyone can do?
This is a wonderful posting, looks almost prehistoric. Thank you for sharing it.

C'est rageant, Luc. Je suis désolé pour vous, d'autant plus que comme nous tous vous êtes un passionné de nature et de photo, et que nous ressentirions la même chose à votre place. Plus que la qualité de la photo (vous nous avez habitué à de meilleures :-)), j'imagine que c'est ce en quoi vous aimeriez changer votre voleur, si vous étiez Merlin l'Enchanteur, pour le voir ensuite happé par un corbeau. Bon courage, et tenez nous au courant de vos recherches pour du nouveau matériel, le cas échéant.

Bonjour, Luc. I am so sorry to hear about your misfortune. I hope you can replace your camera soon.
This is a very unusual grasshopper. It looks like its skin is peeling. I wonder if it is molting. It looks like it is in a nymph stage. Very sharp details, great light, and interesting POV.
Good luck on getting a new camera. : )

Luc - It pains to hear that - it is really horrible. I can well understand words can hardly assuge the sense of loss. I only pray that you get a good substitute soon and share the joy of photography with us as ever. Good vibes to you my friend.

Hi luc!
I thought you've forgot TN :-)
Sorry about your equipment!

Thanks for this original photo.

I am very, very sorry to hear about the theft of your equipment. It's a very sick world! I hope you will soon recover from the robbery. Don't give up on photography please.

Your photo is very nice. TFS!


Great shot Luc!
Really sorry to hear about your equipment :(
As for the shot, I have no idea what species it is, but it looks very interesting.
Great details and interesting POV.
Well done!

Luc that is terrible. I am so sorry. The world we live in can be very ugly.

Thank you for sharing this image with us.


Joli travail Luc, composition et couleurs
Desole pour ton matériel
Amicalement Christophe

Great photo, as usual, but most importantly it's terrible to hear that you were robbed. That is a terrible feeling that people are so dishonest. I hope they get what they deserve in the long run...


What a great capture Luc. Excellent dof, great colours and composition. Would have been even better if the grasshopper had turned the front toward you but you cannot have it all in one day;-). Anyway a very good capture.

I truly understand your feelings about the missing camera - must be something like John Wayne without sixshooter. Hope you will get it back or some insurance money soon.

Luc, I'm sorry to hear of this sickening event.
I hope you feel better very soon, and get back out on those sunny days, doing what you do so well.
Don't let some worthless idiot take your happiness away.

This is a great shot, very well detailed, good colours and composition. Thanks for posting.

Nice close-up, my friend.
Sorry to hear about your equipment.
I hope you get it back or a new one.
Good POV and well composed.
Well done.

Belle et intéressante composition macro-photographique pour cette sauterelle. Profondeur de champ un peu courte.

Je suis sincèrement désolé pour le vol de votre S1, vous formiez un couple efficace... Allez vous essayer le Canon S2-IS qui semble prometteur ?

I'm very sorry to hear that Luc! I know what you feel :-( I hope that you regain your preferred toy or buy new one. Don't worry my friend!
Photo is great - looks like portrait of dinosaur, textures looks for some reason ancient. Great work and I hope we'll here good news from you soon!

Hi Luc!
Very nice composition.I'm sorry for your camera.I hope you get better one in near future.

Luc, nice shot on this grasshopper. Wonderful texture on this guy. Sorry for the loss of your equipment. Being a law enforcement officer, I see this alot. Hang in there.. Not all humans are bad, just some

May the fleas of a thousand camels invest his jockstrap!

Luc, I am sorry for you loss and hope you will be able to replace them soon. I can relate to the "toy taken away" thought and would feel exactly the same.
