Very nice, so many beautiful things to look at and great colours in this photo.

Hi Nikola - A very pleasing composition, contrasting the delicate and colourful beauty of the flower (really great job there!) with the almost monochrome, armoured exoskeleton of your hopper (is it a bush cricket?).

Bruce :D :D

Lovely shot!

However, "plant hopper"? This looks like a male bush cricket (katydid) to me.

My images are a medium for sharing some of my experiences: they are not me.
