Another grasshopper, this shot shows just how well camouflaged these little critters are.

WOW!!! if this is the kit lense, i may have to think twice about the 55mm... i'm not sure i want you to have true macro abilities.. anyway -- a great sharp shot. congrats.

Really sharp, but I sure don't like grasshoppers - they always make a mess of my windshield. It's a good shot, though.

Oops, I forgot to mention I cropped this image as well, I would love to be able to get a full frame shot like this without cropping, that's my goal for the short term future! lol!

Don't you dare change your mind about the 55mm lens, I'm all excited now! lol! I tell you, last night, I was so excited that I couldn't go to bed until I managed to calm down. I am like a child on Christmas Eve when it comes to things like this, I get so excited and god help me if I'm planning on getting something on a Monday and have to wait a whole weekend, I'm unbearable! rofl!

Alison, I'm like you - imagine having to wait 2 or 3 weeks, sometimes more. Also like you I dream of the full-frame clarity.

I use Opanda exif reader and it say the focal length is 190mm. It may be wrong but, did you use the 18-55mm kit lens for this shot.

Excellent shot by the way.

It's possible I had my sigma lens on for that shot actually, I did a bit of swapping around that day to see which gave the better results between that and the kit lens with the fliter. Wasn't alot in it to be honest. I know I did a couple with each lens that day.

Whatever the lens was, the resulting picture is impressive. And I bet you agree it was fun taking it!

LOL, for sure, crawling around on the ground getting bruised knees, great fun! lolol!

I must get some really strange looks from passers by at times, I'm always there with my butt up in the air trying to get that perfect shot from the ground! lol!

A sign of a true photographer. I was reading recently that by themselves a photographer will not do that but, if they have company they will crouch down on a sidewalk in a busy street.
