    What a cute little fella. It is amazing the detail we never notice unless we get up close. The face and mouth of this grasshopper is fascinating.

    Thank you Runmonty. I wanted to do more photos...I still have some more from the side...But anyway I am not 100% satisfied and I feel that I have a lot to learn.

    So, for this photo I used:
    Canon 650D, Sigma 70-300 (which has "Macro" mode) and Macro extension tubes. ISO 800, 1/1000.
    I usually don't use so much AF...Manual is my favorite. It is more difficult, but I like it..It is more exciting to control everything and when it is a good result, the satisfaction is greater...
    So, to this photo, how to have a better depth of field?
    I know, it's an old story... Insects don't stand still. When is about flowers...well...I know...Tripod... Here everything is done in hurry...But...
    Please, tell me what I did wrong on this photo.
    What software might help me more in Macro photography ?(I have GIMP and Darktable...but I don't use them currently).

    there's a face only a mother could love.

    i think you're off to a great start on this. what was your aperture? if possible try a smaller aperture to get a little more in focus, always try to get the eyes in focus.

    for software help you'll be fine with gimp or darktable.

    Thank you Loki.
    So, smaller aperture...
    Eyes in focus.
    GIMP and Darktable.
    What about the stacking software (free or cheap one...I am on tight budget...)?

    i'm not sure if gimp does it, but i use photoshop for stacking landscape shots. sometimes i let ps do it for me,. sometimes it doesn't do too well and i mask by hand.

    I know Photoshop is the best, but as I am just a beginner, I'll try to get more experience with GIMP (because is ...FREE). I have never tried to stack photos...but as I like Macro photography...I think that it's a must do.
    Thank you Loki.
