I'm not sure if you have a zoom lens or not, but either way, this is MUCH TOO CLOSE! I had an irrational fear of grasshoppers when I was a kid. I still avoid them like the plague that they are. If it was good enough for Moses, it's good enough for me.
By the way, I have a little award to pass on to you. Come on over and see what it's all about.

I am just catching up - how do I get so far behind?? That was quite an experience you had with little miss Emily! Very scary, and I am so glad it turned out okay. And you have to go through it again??

Love the little chef!
