The composition is great. I like the way he is pearched on the leaf platform. Just a tad bit of noise.

I really like the composition and the whole scene too.
Did not notice noise until Doug pointed it out.

It's a bit bright on some parts of the insect though.

And, the insect is really interesting to give a second look.


*edit* forgot the word noise in the 2nd sentence.

I really like this one. I love the vivid Florida green vegetation. The composition is excellent. As I studied more carefully, i noticed the repeating inverted V-shapes. The antennae, the legs and the branch of the flower. The way you have thrown the background completely out-of-focus really makes the grasshopper stand out.

What are the technical details. I like to study focal length and aperture to help me in my photography.
