[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In my garden I saw this grasshopper on a nice flower.
I don't know what's in his mouth, in my opinion it looks like a cigarette. Don't laugh about my fancy phantasy!

I want to explane something:
This photo is not made with a reflex-camera.
With my digital-camera, I have to go very near to make makro-photos, this is the original size - not cutted on PC! I always must have a lot of luck, the insects let me come so near.
At some of my other photos, a lot of people didn't know that at their critics.
I just wanted to explane, thanks.

Hi Wishnu... I appreciate the effort on your part to get the close ups! The pattern on the insects is very clear and colors are striking. Well done!

I like the shot, it's realy funny,
Personal I think the macro is not bad and through cropping, you can made it even some better. I let you see that in a WS. I hope you like it, even nice job.
gr. Jaap

Wishnu Garuda, sometimes, it's difficult to shoot when we don't have an appropriate equipment. It happnes with me too. Maybe because of that sharpness could be better in the picture above.

Despite that, the shot is very nice. Great pov and composition. I like colors too.

Hallo, das ist ein Klasse Macro. Ich nehme an das sind entweder Fühler oder Zähne, die er als Beisswerkzeuge benutzt. Jedenfalls gefällt mir das Foto. Weiter so!:-)

Hallo Sabine, sehr schönes Foto vom Grashüpfer. Schöne warme Farben und auch vom Licht ein schöner Aufbau. Ich hätte evtl. den Hüpfer etwas kleiner dargestellt, also etwas mehr Abstand.

Its very funny pfoto ... good composition and DOT.
Fantastic shot!:))
Thanks for your note:)

Beautiful colors ans details,your gallery is like a safari un
The world of insects
Bye francesco
