I tried to get a close-up of this grasshopper, but I'm afraid this is the best I could do :-{

Have a Date Gray!

Not going to try to snatch that one from your hand! I would slop my dripper running from it, looks mean up close and personal

OregonArtGuy said...

Thanks Laura: Yeah, I was pretty close - it was one of those once in a lifetime shots - he took off momentarily, never to be seen or heard from again :-}

Goodness, that shot is amazing, Bill!

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

Reminds me of the 'bad guys' in 'A Bugs Life'. Did you ever see that? They looked just like this. Mean and ugly. LOL Great shot.

OregonArtGuy said...

Thanks Carol - he was very cooperative - briefly :-}

Hi Cris - Yes I DID see that movie - I liked it a lot! Those bad guys were some BAD critters!

The photographie is impressive, Bill… even if I shiver in front of these small creatures, I recognize the beauty of the catch of sight.
Congratulations !!!

It looks huge! You got closer than I ever would've wanted to. Nice shot and you caught it just in the nick of time before it flew the coop.

Footsteps said...

Nice one, Bill. You caught a lot of interesting texture detail in that.

OregonArtGuy said...

AVCr8teur: Thanks for your comment. He was such a nice poser - briefly :-}

OregonArtGuy said...

Footsteps: Thank you Heather - I appreciate you stopping by - every once in awhile you get a decent shot - in spite of yourself! :-}

OregonArtGuy said...

Beetle: Thanks Babs - almost like me - prehistoric :-}
