detailsInsect pornography is rapidly becoming a worldwide problem of epidemic proportions. Here's how I came upon this lurid and indecent image.

While strolling through the park one day; in the merry, merry month of May, I was taken by surprise while tiptoeing through the Tulips to come across this pair of
Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers performing a live sex show right out in the open. And for what! A couple of lousy Ant tidbits or whatever the hell they eat! It was a disgrace. Is there nowhere to safely walk by yourself or your loved ones or children and not be assaulted by this type of wanton behavior? Put your foot down and stamp out BP (buggy porn). Remember: A moral bug is a HAPPY bug!

maybe they are just fighting for that leaf food? or am i being naive here? great capture, ideal makro!

Excellant!!! Great DOF, color and clarity! I almost did not read your detail but I do agree most of the time people do not read anything. If you stamp out insect porn you would have not had this wonderful image
4 Rudi Van Gestel   (6/29/2005 7:49:38 AM)
Colourful grasshoppers! Very good image!
... and yes - mostly of the time I read the details written by the photographers...!

Wonderful love scene!

Yes, I read it all and I'm extremely embarrassed after viewing this image. My face is red..I'm hiding behind my screen:)
Nice detail..I can see everything.

The worst part of the dispicable scene is that soon there will be another 50 or 60 lubber grasshoppers! Eating the plants and anta, and having more sex. Heaven Forbid!! LOL. Kid, the colors are dynamic. Glad you didn't put your foot down till after taking the image. Take care. barb.

A good behavioral insect capture, I like the vibrant colors! Wish their eyes were sharper though, and the background's a bit on the busy side.
13 Sergio Pessolano   (6/29/2005 9:39:57 AM)
Wonderful shymphony of shapes and colors.

beautiful (10)
17 docmm   (6/29/2005 9:55:10 AM)
I read it and very entertaining this piece is too! As for the grasshoppers, they're pretty sharp with brilliant colour. Would benefit from a less messy BG.. He obviously needs to liven up his act, she's still eating her lunch!
18 KAY (........ .......)   (6/29/2005 9:59:10 AM)
Must be the season to be jolly :) beautiful detail in the hoppers...

28 Andy Cooper ( What I SHOULD have done was.....)   (6/29/2005 12:48:37 PM)
Absolutely stunning in every respect !!!!! the description.
This is one ace macro.
As regards the disgraceful behaviour, I'm afraid this kind of thing is endemic these days, and in my opinion the slide down the slippery slope started with the termination
of National Service.
29 Corry   (6/29/2005 1:02:16 PM)

33 Awais   (6/29/2005 4:04:01 PM)
Excellent macro work. Colours and light is so beautiful here. Enhansing the colours are the key of the image. Fantastic........
34 joe bellantoni   (6/29/2005 5:12:39 PM)
Well kid...those are 2 horney bugs! Nice color is that the actual color? I can't believe you got that much detail with that lens...what focal length was it talken at...I have tried to do some stuff like this but even with the vr lens it never comes out this sharp...unless you used an extension tube...Cool shot.
