Posing Grasshopper

Posing Grasshopper I took the bike down to a wetland area a while back. I had hoped to buy some eggs at the Skutan farm, but was informed by the farmer that the chickens were busy laying eggs. The cafe was also closed, so that's why I continued to the wetland for some bird watching from the tower. Obviously no birds were visible. So my last chance of some interesting photos was the insects at the wetland.

Nice shot. I'm surprised he stayed there while you took his photo.

Very nice macro shot. Have to agree with Andy about the grasshopper staying still.

I like the fact that you never gave up until you got a shot - and a good one, too!

Excellent macro, love your title made me think of Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid.

I have never seen one so close!

As has already been said, very nicely done. Is this the old trick with super glue, only kidding!

Hope you got some eggs on the way back

Excellent macro. He obviously noticed there were no birds too or he would not have stayed long enough for the photos. Not being eaten is a good thing.
