Love the comp and bg. It looks to me like you may have been dealing with some pretty harsh light; if so, you made the most of illuminating those wings.
Good light,
Craig

The backlighted flowers attracted my attention and while looking through the lens, I saw the grasshopper. I couldn't get to the other side nor get closer as the plant was in the middle of the field, so I made the best of the situation. light was somewhat softened by a thin cloud cover.

Nice light shining through the flowers and the katydid's wings, attractive soft background.

Very nicely captured with a beautiful complementary colour palette.

I like how the grasshopper is cradled in the middle -lovely composition and beautiful colors in the background. I like the soft light too.
