Watering my flowers yesterday, I found this grasshopper tucked up inside this hollyhock.

Have a great day ! Julie

Ciao Julie, lovely grashoperon beautiful flower, excellent sharpness, fine details, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Julie
good close up on a nice natural scene. splendid clarity of the grasshopper's profile. fine shallow DOF for 3Dish effect.

What coincidence, I had posted recently the same insect regarding to me too.
Great shot yours. Great harmony of colors and impressive sharpness.
Very special POV/DOF.

Looks like this grasshopper was patiently waiting for you to snap the picture. Love the pose. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Julie,

Nawwwww that camouflage is not suitable for Mr. Grasshopper, he could be caught or pointed immediately if there was a predator around.

A beautiful catch from the nature while prey does some mistakes. Fine details and aesthetically documented image. Excellent composition. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Hello Julie, I think that I would jump a mile if I found one of these 'jumpers' in my hollyhocks!
The detail you have captured is excellent.He seems to be looking rather quizzically at you!
I like the shallow DoF,just focusing on the front of him.
Good bokeh which doesn't distract.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Julie
A splendid Nature shot with such an interesting moment. This green grasshopper is seen trapped in this pink flower. Good light management and such sharpness.
Well done,
