Greetings from the Critique Club!

Yes, this does indeed appear to be an abstract macro, especially as the hopper in question is out of focus, which I am guessing is the intent. That stem it's perched on is very hairy or needly! Interesting use of bokeh. Image is a little overexposed on the grasshopper's head, but the composition is actually quite clean otherwise. Bugs of all kinds are tough to shoot because they often move or fly off or what they are perched on moves, so not a bad effort.

I see a lot of potential in images like this; if you continue to compete, and more importantly learn from comments and critiques, you could do very well here.

Whilst I like the idea of the stem being the focus rather than the insect...I would have preferred it if MORE of the stem was in focus.

I love grasshoppers ..
wish it was focused on the hopper instead of the plant..but the blurriness of the hopper brings out the macro of the plant nicely.. depending on what you wished for..

Fantastic. Finding photos in which folks creatively followed the theme has been limited. The framing, color, focal point, etc. are all very good. I like this photo.
