Default Grasshopper

Went to the Abbotsford International Airshow to take pictures of the various fighter plays in the air and on the ground and on my way back to my car this little guy was sitting on it.

There were tons of them hopping/flying around in the fields where people were parking their cars.

I agree with melanie, the reflection adds another dimension to a good shot to make it even better.

Geat shot Gimli. Extremely sharp! However I would remove the head-like thing in the top of the picture. But you could crop away!
Such a fine shot deserves to presented in the right way IMO.

You know- it's the grasshopper you want to show people, not that fancy looking hood :lol:

Great shot anyway, but...

Hi.
nice shot. But I agree to the others concerning the head.
With the stamp tool in PS, you can easily let it disappear:

Hi - nice pic.

I would bring out the colours more and I would get rid of the specks on the surface - car?

Here's my crappy rendition. The jpg compression was pretty lousy to begin with.
