5. Got lucky with this find, they hadn't even darkened yet

All shot on the Olympus OMD EM10 M2, 60mm macro and Godox TT 350O with DIY diffuser.

C&C sought :)

Cheers!

All very nice photos. Thank you for sharing! I especially like the grasshopper composition and colors! Where were the photos taken in India?

Wow! All beautiful! I like the last one with the scary looking hatchlings most.
The trouble with quick and dirty is that the dirty remains after the quick is gone.

Agree with all of the above, another great set!
I like the colour, composition and subtle lighting, the last image is really special. This can all be found near Bangalore?
