    how could you guys can capture such small creature! Isn’t this grasshopper suppose to hop when they feel someone approaching? Amazing!

      It starts with having a good eye for a photo, then having the right equipment to take the photo and make it happen. Oh he did eventually hop away but he let me take a few shots of him first. You just have to act quickly. 🙂

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment KC!

    I can not believe some people eat these guys! Great shot! I was sad you quit posting photos. I am glad you will be doing that again! What ever happened to that book you were going to do?

      I know! How could you shove something like that into your mouth? I’ll pass. Thanks Luisa and I hope to start posting a “Photo of the Day” every day again soon!

      The book? Ah yes, THE BOOK. The book hasn’t happened. 😦

      Thanks Tosha! Oh, he ran for his little life. I snuck up on him and was quick enough to fire off a few shutter clicks first though. I’m like a ninja I tell ya! LOL

    Awesome shot! I’m impressed!

    Was he really that bright green or did you enhance the color?
