Can't comment on the ID as I know so little about grasshoppers. Focus, sharpness , POV, colors and composition look very nice. TFS

Very nice macro of a Common Green Grasshopper (Omocestus viridulus) taken from a fine POV in a simple composition against a good contrasting bokeh BG. The fine details made it easy for me to check your ID (bullseye!)
Thanks for sharing this one,

Great capture of this little Grasshopper clinging on to the straw. Nice soft background and very good details and colours and I like your framing.
Many thanks, Ulla

Great detail and colour in this macro Joe.
The long crop suits the shot really well and the pale pinkish hues in the background contrast nicely with the green.
All around,a great shot.

Very good. Super crisp shot with focus entirely on the grasshopper. It is very distinct and the only thing worth looking at...A fine work and lesson Joey!
Another very good macro from you!
I really like the textures of that armor that he calls skin...they stand out very nicely here.
The colors are also beautiful and the focus is spot-on. Perhaps the DOF is a bit too shallow (i'm not worried about the antennae - they usually are impossible to keep in focus - but here the closest part of the leg is also a bit blurred).
Other than that, there is no nit here and the macr work is very good.
Bravo and TFS

Wait until you start macros with your new camera, then I will

Great close up!
I like very much the wide composition made here, you really got the best from this subject.
