Sometimes compact cameras do a better job, as is well illustrated by this very fine picture of mating Grasshoppers on a wide green leaf, Ivan.
The colour of the subjects goes well with the green of the leaf and is very soothing to look at.
Thanks for showing this lovely picture from summertime.

WOW ! superb timing from you too shoot in photo these insects in love,
very fine POV, DOF and the way they are framed, superb focus
sharpness and details, i think we have already written to each other,
sometimes (and i would say more often) compacts do better
macro photos than DSLRs, great job of your Canon PowerShot G9,

Very sexy picture :-) It's almost unreal to see so much green colour during our winter - very good reminder of summer days. Nice macro with interesting moment and good quality.

Hi Ivan. Thanks for reminding me better not forget after 39 years.!! This is a very sharp well detailed picture of the pair of grasshoppers. You have used the G9 so well in the close up. Which has given natural bright colours. Well taken TFs.

they really are hard to see most of the time but are good subjects: if you approach from the right angle you can go pretty close with the cam - as I see you did that too. I had some images of this species too (but I think I haven't posted yet) so I can add Hungary to their location list, although I think they might be pretty wide spread across Europe.
Imaged the moment well with nice natural colors. TFS!

I love this! Perfect timing to capture the male's arm around his valentine. He looks a lot more amorous than she. Marvelous pose on the lovely leaf. Of course, excellent colors, details and composition.

This summer I have pictured almost the same species (I think) on the leaf. You managed to catch lovely pair. Exactness of derails of the insects and the leaf are exceptional. Colours and lights are great too. I also like a lot wonderful diagonal composition of the shot. My compliments and best regards.

Hmm, this is a fine and humerous preview on Valentine's day! I will try not to forget the 14th February, maybe you could post a reminder of this kind on the 13th?
Lovely picture, technically perfect and with a delicate subject. The fine details highlight the insects characteristics at best and the picture is well accompanied by interesting notes.

Hi Ivan again,
I know we were neighbours with this image, I saw it, but had to go that time, and later I forgot it. Excuse me MF. But better later or never, so good evening, neighbour! :)
Fantastic macro shot, many details, great sharpness. Lovely pose of the g'hoppers for Valentine's Day. :) Superb photo, even if the leave (a small part, of course) became a bit oof. Tfs.
Have a nice Sunday, friendly regards, László
