[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Any of the leaping insects of the family Acrididae (short-horned grasshoppers) or Tettigoniidae (long-horned grasshoppers), both in the order Orthoptera.

Grasshoppers are most common in tropical forests, semiarid regions, and grasslands. Colours range from green to olive or brown, sometimes with yellow or red markings. Grasshoppers eat plant material and may damage crops. Some species are more than 4 in. (11 cm) long. The male can produce a buzzing sound either by rubbing its front wings together or by rubbing toothlike ridges on the hind legs against a raised vein on each front wing. Grasshoppers are a favourite food of many birds, frogs, and snakes.

Hi Ridvan

Very good macro with great DOF and POV. The detail is very nice - especially the eye.

Merhaba Rıdvan,
Çok keskin bir makro.Pozlama,ışık,detaylar ve arka plan da harika.>Tebrikler,ellerine sağlık!

Hi Ridvan
I like your sharp image of big grasshopper. I made some changes for another POV i hope you like it
Best wishes

rebonjour ridvan
je prefere celle-ci a celle d'hier car la netteté est meilleur et la vue de face est preferable,cependant je trouve que vous auriez pu utiliser une vitesse moins elevée pour pouvoir donner plus de profondeur de champ et ainsi avoir les pattes arriere nettes.

Hi Ridvan,
Splendid close-up shot of this grasshopper. Very neat and sharp details. Excellent POV to capture a nice pose with fabulous eye contact. Seems it is saying 'hello' to you. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Ridvan
Very good picture, with good sharpness and colours. The only one thing that could be changed is the background behind the antenna (but of course I know how difficult is to take a picture in nature with uniform BG). So it doesn't change my evaluation that the picture is great.
Best wishes

Hi Ridvan,

Sharp and detailed.
I love the eyes.
Well done,

Hi Ridvan,
Another great capture of the Big grasshopper. DOF and POV are excellent. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Merhaba Ridvan, splendid portrait with wonderful details, great composition with excellent sharrpness, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

This is a remarkable macro frontal view of a grasshopper's face, Ridvan.
Every bit of the insect's face is in sharp focus. The image has the right kind of tonality which you have achieved by setting your camera very expertly.
Very well done and thanks for sharing this wonderful picture.
