Hi again,
Went bush walking yesterday and saw hundreds of these, this guy was kind enough not to hop away. IMO the colours are a little flat but the texture is cool. Nature is amazing at times especially how these little critters are designed to be so well camouflaged.
FZ10, Nikon 6T, F8, 1/125s, iso 50 and an unsharp mask to improve sharpness.
Comments and constructive criticism always welcome.

First photo taken at 5x zoom. I then took it up to 12x to get this one.
F8, 1/200, iso 50 and again an USM in PS

Two absolutely wonderful shots! I like the colors, you think they're flat! Also, you really know how to do USM... spot on! Mind sharing your settings? Few things improve a digital pic than the usm, but there's an art to that.

Thanks guys.
squirl033, I cant wait for winter! Summer here is always hot and humid. That walk was only 10km but I drank over 3L of water! Thank god there was a beautiful pool at the end. Winter here is still hot (~20 degrees) so perfect for walking.

Nick, Im a newbie to USM and have only used it a dozen times or so, sorry no secret setting just play until it looks good. To be honest though the original image was pretty sharp so USM had minimal effect. When I said the colour was flat I was referring to it being more "natural", it was the texture of the grasshopper that I really liked.

Another top shot Treemonkey.

Did you find the 6t locally or did you get it from OS.
I'm looking to get one but the only Australian source I can find is http://stores.ebay.com.au/DigitalRev...otography-Shop

They have it listed for AU $69.99

Thanks.
