Very nice, very good accomplishment. The unique thing I would prefer is the foreground more distant for defocus its texture ( I dont know if possible in your case) ok. Best Regards!

Thank you Bevellee, thank you Adrie , thank you Sergio and thank you Fons for your comments to my kork hopper !

I thought it just taks a view minutes to produce some decent shots from this grasshopper after he found his way in our living room ! No way ! - I needed half an hour until I had 2 shots I can live with ! This green guy was constantly dancing in circles on this bottle kork when I tried to turn his face (via turning the bottle) towards the camera ! And when I thought - NOW press the shutter (remote)...... it took close to a second until I could hear the "click" of the camera ! Not an easy or quick task ....
