when I saw that this week's challenge on photoblogchallenges was macro, I was 4000+ miles away from my macro lens. so, upon my return yesterday, I grabbed it and went looking for something in my garden. I hadn't really expected to find my friend grasshopper again (or a cousin even), but I did, so of course I had to snap more shots of him. I don't like the lighting as much as the first day I found him because it was overcast and late in the day.

please comment!

franz from Baden, Austria

the lines of his eye and the texture of his "shoulder blades" are truly fascinating ... quite impressive what one can do with a macro lense!!!

@franz: yes, they eye is fascinating, isn't it? I found it very interesting that the focus on the macro lens is much narrower than with my regular lens used close up. I could get really close with the macro but I felt I had to really select where I wanted the focus. I'm constantly learning!!
