I've just come across this picture, and wanted to take a moment to say what a wonderful shot it is.

Pin point focus, and great colours. Very very good.

Thanks everyone for all of the nice comments. This was one of maybe 20 different shots I took of grasshoppers at the park - they are very easy to get close to, much like Praying Mantis.

However, they are just shy enough to be interesting - they like to peer around the grass blades to keep an eye on you, so to speak, and this makes for almost comical expressions.

Congratulations, great capture. The composition and light/dark contrast is perfect.

strong image. Nice and simple, no distractions. Sharpness and DOF exactly where it needs to be. Good pose and composition, very natural.

Reminds me of A Bugs Life. Nature imitating art. I like everything about it but especially the precise focus on the bug's head.

I was getting sick of all the bug shots, but this is probably the best out of the bunch. There were a few other very exceptional bug shots, but this one wins. 10!
