Since I don't have a macro lens or even a reverse ring I was hoping to find a big enough bug to get some detail with my 50mm prime. When I saw this grasshopper in my yard I shot a few frames as fast as I could before it hopped away. Thankfully one was in focus.

Most people gave this a six. I would have too... I'd have appreciated a closer crop... and some noise reduction.
Good focus!

Thanks for the comments. There was a brown grass hopper that I took a few pictures of but it wasn't as big as this one and didn't come out as sharp.

With the grasshopper and the leaves the same color, a tighter crop would help this. I also think a shallow DOF, to isolate the grasshopper, would help.

i think the lack of contrast between the grasshopper and leaf may have hurt your score, it's almost like he's camouflaged in there. great detail though, it was a 7 from me
