[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
for Peter Ross (Batu),
whose is doing some wonderful job on insects of Sulawesi, which I am following with great interest.

This Grasshopper perched on Castor oil plant (Ricinus communis) was found in my backyard today morning. Along with the grasshopper I liked the flowers of the plant.

Hello Nagaraj,
Great photo of this grasshopper on this beautiful flower. Superb sharpness and details. Splendid natural colours. Good POV, DOF, OOF BG and composition.

Hi Nagaraj
A really nice macro composition. I think the flowers make this shot as much as the grasshopper. The blurred background allows the subjects to stand out.
Kind Regards

Hello Nagaraj,
A very fine macro of a grasshopper nicely taken on the attractive flowering Castor Oil plant. Both are taken from a great POV with nice sharpness against a BG that has become your hallmark.
I'm sure Peter Roos will appreciate this when he sees it.
Thanks and all the best,

Namaste Nagaraj,
in the last days I was rather busy and I had not much time to spend at TN. Therefore, my late response
to your nice dedication which I enjoy very much. I like to see the fine natural colours and also
the delicate structures of both the insect and the plant.
So ... thank you for this nice picture!
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Nagaraj, A fine pin-sharp image of nature close up. The plant itself is an interesting addition to the photograph. I saw a similar insect this morning at the pool but didn't have the camera with me. TFS. Murray.

Hi Nagaraj
Great macro of this interesting looking grasshopper on the Castor Plant. The flowers are a nice bright colour and a great contrast to the background colours and grasshopper. Excellent composition, detail and lighting.
