Hi Folks,

another macro shot of a grasshopper feeding on a leaf.

i like the pose here....embracing tightly the leaf, just like a possessive and spoilt brat who does not want to share his food with others....:)

Have tried many times to get a good macro shot on a grasshopper's compound eyes, but none of the outcomes is satisfactory yet.

Thanking you in advance for viewing and your kind words.

Hi Agoes

A good macro shot of the feasting grasshopper, with perfect sharpness, and shallow dof. Tfs!

Salam Agoes
Very beautiful macro, technical and professional.
Excellent combination of aperture and shutter speed.
Great POV, needs some noise reduction.

Another mind blowing macro Agoes!
The detail you get is truly amazing.
The sharpness is just perfect.
And you always manage to get your subjects in the most human like poses.

Agoes, the detail on your macro shots is really astounding. I was going to comment too, on his "arm" wrapped around the leaf! He's not letting go until he's had his fill!! Great job.

Hi Agoes...great details and light on this close up...nice work.

Hi Agoes,
A smashing macro of this cricket (grasshopper). One may find many details which are totally invisible with a naked eye. Perfect rich colors and crystal sharpness.

Thanks for visiting my photo and best regards,

Your macro shots are wonderful. It's something that I have never tried before but looking at these may inspire me I think. It must be really satisfying to get such results. Thanks.

Superb macro shot. It looks like he is having a good feast there with that big leaf. The sharpness and colour are perfect - it is a great photo. I love it.
Cheers Joan

Another great macro - superb colours and details. And at least this insect isn't biting you!
Thanks for sharing

Wow - he's chomping through the leaf. And yes, he does look happy with the leaf curling around him.
Very good macro Agoes - well done

Bonsoir Agoes,

Nice close-up. Image is sharp and well exposed. DOF is sufficient for the insect and leave a beautifull blur BG. Color contrast looks very good. Nice work and TFS.
