Very cute. Looks like it 's just getting up from snuggling in for the night.

Hi Sandy,

I like this composition and the katydid looks nice and sharp. Well done…………….Jim

Hi Sandy, nice high key look and I like the details on the katydid. Nicely composed with the diagonal of the plant and the insect nicely placed in the plant opening. Well done.

Sandy: A terrific party crasher and a fine result. Many :+1::+1::+1::+1::+1:>=))>

Very elegant and captivating image… Almost suspended in its own reality. Reminds of an illustration from a fairy-tale book… Very nice!

Sandy: love the pose and the tonal match of the katydid and Cala lily. The katydid is sharp along its entire length which is a big plus. Congrats on the EP. Richard

Nice work, Sandy, a very appealing image!
Regards, Ingrid.
