This little guy was very cooperative while I was photographing him. He really is kinda neat looking and thankfully my camera caught some of the great details in his wings.

Well...I hate grass hoppers! BUT, if I've ever seen a fantastic picture of one, this is definitely it! They've never been cooperative with me, they just jump on me and make me look stupid in front of my kids.

Wow, great pictures! You really captured all the detail. That's great that he was cooperative, I have a hard time getting my kids to cooperate much less a grasshopper :)

You've made an ugly bug look very good. I'm trying to get over bug-heebie-jeebis, but it's hard.

Great shots... my kids are playing with grasshoppers outside right now :)!!

Great shot! I love the detail and the colors.

Well its a really good photo, but I resisted the temptation to enlarge the picture! Not too keen on bugs, you see!

Autumn said...

Wow! I can't believe he stayed still that long! Great shots!
