Great bug -- good job controlling DoF to maintain lots of detail.

Despite trying to blend in with the surroundings, this little critter couldn't escape your eagle eye. Superb picture, well done!

Very striking colours, would love to see this against a black background.

Text book beautiful. Only wish he had been on a solid light colored base so you could see everything about his legs and feet. He is georgeous and well photographed. Good solid 9 and almost a 10. Base would have gotten the 10. PTL He actually looks like a prehistoric monster. Great job. The more I look it's a 10 inspite of the grass. You can see his texture on his head, his armour on his neck and his wings. I love his antennae and his legs. Great.

Nice detail

One of the few insects where the whole body is in focus :)

Nice colors. It looks a little grainy to me. Not out of focus, per se, just seems to have a touch of grain. karmat

Nice macro, would have been great on a less busy background.

I hope these things are only in Mexico. The shot is terrific - great job! lhall

I have never seen one of these with the unusual wing pattern and colors. Nice picture, though I wish it was more to the side.
11/12/2002 06:16:00 PM
Nice shot, colors work well together

That is one big hopper. Great depth of field.
11/12/2002 05:14:00 AM
Great color and good focus. Would have done better on a leaf or more solid background. The grass seems a bit too busy and takes away from the awesome subject. DPz

nice color and depth of field, might have chosen a different background.
11/11/2002 07:05:00 PM
this was a tremendously hard shot.. I tried just one pic like this and when he hopped away I said F that... LOL bonus points for you...
11/11/2002 04:44:00 PM
another great animal portrait find the background distracting
11/11/2002 01:38:00 PM

That is the coolest grasshopper I have ever seen. byetko.

wow. looks like a grasshopper, but he's got blue wings. I like it! you have shown us great detail in this little guy. angle and framing/cropping are good. focus is just perfect in my opinion. lighting conditions seem to have been favorable as well. nice shot! Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~
