[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe
This mornings capture is a male Marsh Grasshopper,I have posted last year already a female of this Grasshopper,the male is smaller and has a shorter abdomen in relation to the wings,which you will notice if you compare both uploads,I used fillflash with this shot,as well I tried some shots without flash and with a shallow dof (for which I used f 4),however I prefer the captures with using fillflash as the captures are more detailed and have more dof.

Hope you like it and tfw

Prachtige opname van deze sprinkhaan. Door de invulflits komen inderdaad de details prachtig tot hun recht en heb je een prachtige dieptewerking in de foto gekregen.

Great pov and clarity of details.
Well done!

Hello Paul,
This is the largest species of Grasshopper in Sweden (the female being larger than the male though) and it is very colourful and beautiful. This is a brilliant capture with great DOF, sharp details and fine colours. I like your composition and the background is beautiful.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Paul,
Great macro of a male Marsh Grasshopper of high technical standard and once again well illuminated with expert use of flash. I tried to get a good shot of this species last year but got nowhwere near this standard. You inspireme to try again.

Hi Paul
Very nice macro. Great composition and colors. Very good OOF buckground. I think you could do some selective sharpening on the abdomen and third pair of legs.
Best wishes

Hi Paul

This is a very handsome fellow. I love the pose with him clinging on there. Wonderfully sharp details, great work with the flash and lovely colours.



Hi Paul,
good sharp image of this gh.
fine color,pov, and bg

I'd say that is about as sharp as a photo can get! It is just beautiful. I love the out of focus background too.

bonjour paul
les couleurs de ce criquet ressortent merveilleusement bien,beaucoup de details et une netteté impeccable.
