Hallo Stone
This is really a striking image of a fascinating insect. The contrast of light green of the insect and dark green of the leaf it is sitting on is great and portrays beautifully on the screen. The fine details of its shield is seen with great clarity and lovely to look at. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

hallo Stone

Very unique insect, presumably belonging to Grasshoppers family, Stone.
Marvellous sharpness and colours.

Beautiful portrait of this rare grasshopper. Beautiful contrast between the bright, almost fluorescent, green and dark green insect leaf on walking. Great job, Stone!
