I love 'pet shop' grasshoppers, they are so pretty!! You've captured all its colourful details brilliantly!

(I saw the hedgehog last night, it looks very well............though still scratching!! Wink)

That poor hopper, being rescued from the pet shop, and then fed to your hedgies, I'm ashamed of you Wink
A cracking capture, and a very handsome hopper he is (or maybe isn't, by now) Wink Carol

I couldn't resist reporting Carol's quote but she is right about it being a fine shot, maybe I should try the same thingWink

Good to see you knuckling down to one of your favourite subjects (macro)

Spring will soon be her Ade, I hope

A fine piece of "stacking" by the waySmile

Depth looks good from stacking Ade - needed a bit more light on the head though - a lot of detail lost in the dark there.

They're not pretty, but are excellent photo-fodder (as well as hedgehog food). Smile

You are impatient Mr. Ade...spring will be here soon enough.Grin Although the idea of feeding hoppers to hedgehogs i more appealing than deep frying them and eating them.
Great piece of stacking work here.
