perfect image very sharp and the light is dead on.

The true name of this bug slipped my mind, but......"this is a grasshopper"? I thought they where called something else.
Anyways, well done!! #265757

Actually that is a Preying Mantis. Lovely shot too, great clarity and good lighting. Very nice job Gurdas! #1489306
