A photograph worthy of inclusion in an edition of the ‘National Geographic’. Really beautiful composition, colour and capturing the wee beasty! Splendid feast for the eyes.
thanks, thanks THANKS!
The grasshopper looks truly fixated.
Awesome awesome pic! Hugz Lisa and Bear
Well caught! Great picture 🙂
Beautiful. The colors are wonderful.
This color is stunning!
Love the brilliant green grasshopper contrast to the deep orange and red flower.
Outstanding in every way!!!
Your photography is always amazing and stunning, but this one is especially so!
Thanks it was one of those magic moments right after a rain. And the kind grasshopper waited and waited for me to get the shot.
Perfectly gorgeous… Methinks you may have a new camera; marvelous clarity. What a pleasure to see what your eye is seeing and translating. Thank you for images…and poetry. Simply beautiful.
I do. What a joy. Thanks so much!
I’m captive too!!
Perhaps it would look even better as a miniature in some sort of a frame?
Love that idea. YES! Thanks!!!
That grasshopper looks like it’s philosophizing.
This may be the perfect photo! Lovely!
Wow! Simply beautiful.
Unfortunately the grass hopper is contemplating a tasty and colourful meal, rather than appreciating the beauty of his landing place. Beautiful shot! The petals look like they have been enamelled, or cloisonnéd.
Very nice and beautiful!
Wow! beautiful shot, beautiful nature!
Wow, fantastic capture.
Wow! Such vibrant color … both the flower and the grasshopper!
Do you hear the grasshopper at your feet….??? 🙂
How beautiful, the colors are so vibrant!! I hate grasshoppers, but this one is beautiful.
This is just marvelous!
Excellent! Did you drug the bug?
So very captivating. That fantastic photo with those words!
