k@ from Paris, France

Dulcie, i won't know how to describe it, but i love (absolutely) how green & red meet & melt with the fab grasshopper as the surprising link. This is very original, not a macro, a painting. You did something really personal & strong (yet so soft), bravo.

Exciting journey of the insect ... to an unknown world. He is attentive to what may happen! Tension in the air! Very good Dulcie! Best regards, Adela

Great capture! I love the red and green tones. Perhaps it's the way it would appear to an insect. A beautiful twilight world where colour is created by the light reflected by leaves and petals.
