Something different from me today- a grasshopper that I have no clue about the ID...
Image was captured from the boat. I found the colors and patterns charming so I wanted to share it with you.
Any help about the ID is appreciated.

Hi Selen.
What an amazing specimen and species you managed to catch. Fantastic details and splendid colours of the insect. Pictured scene at whole is wonderful. Leaves as a stage for your character are looked greatly as well as smooth BG. Perfect job and thanks for sharing next your fine work (after pause).

Hello Selen,
Though I dare say that no-one on TN can give you the ID of this Peruvian grasshopper it is certainly striking in colours and pattern!
This is a fine sharp capture that makes it contrast well with the leafy BG and I understand your reason for this composition: to keep that fine cutve of the leaf intact.
TFS this beauty!
Best wishes, Ivan

Hello Selen,
Well, well, you certainly star in this category as well!! This is a superb composition with focus on a lovely and colourful Grasshopper. I love the POV and details are very sharp. Excellent work!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Selen
This is an amazing grasshopper..You have recorded his wonderful markings and colours in perfect sharp detail..I really like the way your dof runs through the curve of the leaf with the lines leading into the super hopper.
All the Best

Hi Selen,
So happy to see you posting again. This is an outstanding shot of this colourful grasshopper with immaculate sharpness and details. Lovely colours and spot-on focus and you have had it in a fine pose here on those curled leaves. Looks very attractive. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Selen.
Wonderful picture!
Splendid chromatism and excellent details.
It is really a beautiful grasshopper!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing!

Hello Selen,
Congratulations!Marvelous macro. Good details, nice colors, POV, sharpness, composition and framing are very well. Well done.

Well done, Selen.
So many colors! I even think they couldn't find an appropriate name. You can't say it's the Black... or the Blue...
Maybe you even discovered a new specie. You could call it Selen's grasshopper. Guess it is just an attempt to be funny today!:-)
Back to the image: well done!
I will shop again...

Hi Selen
Colorfull in a green. Perfect OOF background, pretty good sharpness on main object, great saturated colors. Beautiful insect

Hello Selen,
What a wonderful creature. Splendid colours photographed in perfect details. Excellent composition, POV and BG. Very, very beautiful!
Kind regards,

Hi Selen,

beautifull species, nice colours, perfect details of this shot. Nice composed and done.


tropiklerin çekirgeleri de kuşları gibi rengarenk. elinize sağlık Selen hanım, çok güzel bir makro olmuş. iyi akşamlar, selamlar.

Hi Selen,

Yes, this is unusual for you, but I like it a lot. Good detail, nice colours, nice pose, very well done.


Dang Selene...you nailed that one....neat colours...not quite as multi coloured as one Ram posted from India a few weeks back. that one looked almost unreal...this one looks very true to it's nature...not saying anything bad about the E Indian model..just that there is a distinct difference which you have shown us...or at least me...having taken the time to compare:-)

Hi Selen,

I am sorry i can not help with the ID of this Grasshopper and I have to say it makes our Grasshoppers in Brisbane look very bland compared to this, the colours are just stunning, excellent detail, well seen and captured, t.f.s

Cheers Rick :)

merhaba selen
ne güzel türler bunlar böyle; çekim de öyle tabii
türü bilemiyorum ama: bakış açısı, flu arka plan, ışık, renkler ve netlik nefis
eline sağlık

Merhaba Selen,
bellissima immagine di questa cavalletta multicolore, catturata con ottima definizione con uno stupendo BG, ottimi POV e composizione con le foglie mangiucchiate dagli insetti, magnifici i colori.
