Hi Jacob,


A very nice series with the last my favorite. He's looking at you as if he's thinking to himself something like; 'what you lookin' at?

Nice series; didn't realize katydids were still out this late in the season. What camera/lens set-up?

I used E30 for this shoot. 50-200 ex-25 for farther shots and 50 ex-25 for the closeups. With 50mm + ex-25, the DOF was paper thin and it was so hard to get this guy into focus.
