Default I'm terrible at bug names.

Unfortunately bugs aren't good at it either.
I saw this bug the other day and decided to ask it what kind of bug it was.
bug: I'm a bug?
me: yes, what kind?
bug: I suppose I'm a hopper.
me: As in a grass hopper?
bug: I do hop on the grass sometimes.
me: You kind of look like a locust.
bug: do they hop?
me: Not sure but they do fly.
bug: I fly sometimes, am I a fly?
me: no flies are ugly black looking things and you are very pretty.
bug: why thank you.
Then again maybe it was my medication

Well here is the bug that didn't know it was a bug.


Cheers.

Nice detailed shot, lorenww. The colors & sharpness are awesome. Did you take the shot with D5000 18-55 or 55-200mm? I just got D5100 kit for my kid and like to try it out. What's the setting of your shot!!!!!

Thanks for the comments. This was taken with a Minolta Dimage Z1, one of the very few shots that was in focus.

I had no end of frustration with that camera and focus, even when I tried manual. Its basically a point and shoot. This is probably the only worthy shot I got with it.
I'll check to see if it has EXIF info. That camera was the reason I got the Nikon. and yes I am having too much fun.
My D5000 is awesome but the shots do need some PP.
I have some shots in the wildlife forum as well and you can see the results.

Thanks for the comments. Once a photographer always a photographer. It's been about 7 years without an SLR and I couldn't bee more haaaapppppy.
