Hi Mike ,
a superb macro with a good POV,I like the fact that it almost looks like the grasshopper is floating in the air as BG and underground have almost identical colors,well done and TFS,

The details and DOF are very good. A veru good note too.

Great quality light here. Soft and warm. This has really created beautiful colors and tones. Very sharp detail. The 70-200 and extension tube works very well. I opted to take my extension tubes back and just get that macro lens I always wanted. I will eventually get some used extension tubes when I can find a set on ebay reasonable.

Simple but effective. Great light and colours.
Is is very nice how you left only the subject into DOF range.
Pose is lovely too. You found the perfect POV to get both things!

Excellent Perfect Fantastico! This is awesome Mike. After 342 mosquito bites I am back from Peru and I'm happy because I dont think I have anymore blood to spare for those little suckers. :)

Wow! this is a really cool capture, with everything but the subject being soft so that the littel grasshopper really stands out on its own: a portrait-quality photo.
Kudos to you

excellent shot, perfect POV to study all the details of this hopper. The sharpness and colors are wonderful. Very nice DOF and great composition.
Beautiful macro, especially the non-existent background. Great informative note, as well. I'm thinking of getting an extension ring for use with my 70-200 after seeing your photos. How close can you get with that combination? Currently I can focus down to 1.2metres (about 4 feet) and the image is generally no bigger than my 50mm prime which can focus much closer.

Pequeña gran imagen Mike.
Gran nitidez con vívidos colores que realzados por un perfecto DOF.
Los detalles que se aprecian en el insecto son maravillosos.
Little great image Mike.
Great sharpness with vivid colors that heightened by a perfect DOF.
The details that are appraised in the insect are wonderful. Greetings... Ricardo

Low and dirty... Nice POV. Mike it's sharp and well composed. I like it.
Every time some-one tells me "that lens surely takes nice pictures" I wish I could reply by saying "Your oven/stove should prepare wonderful food then.." ;)
