This is just to show you did the right thing buying that lens

I find this interesting, this Grasshopper really blends with its environment. First time I'm seeing one with colours like this :

ISO200, F/20, 1/200 sec, FEC @ +0.66, Sigma EX 105, 420 EX, DRebel





Everytime I was trying to take a side shot, the bloody grasshopper was turning too, I said stop ! It worked :crazy:

Cheers everyone

And I feel like I keep repeating myself too, Eric! For example...

"Great shots! How do you do it so consistently, Eric?"

See what I mean about repeating myself?

I think that grasshoppers might have a limited capacity for changing their color and/or markings depending on the background behind them. I'll have to do some research to see if this is really true...

Hehe Geoff, practice makes perfect they say.

But I'm getting the hang of the lens now, the most difficult part is exposure. Sometimes with a slight different background, the flash goes berzerk and totally miss it.

Apart that, its all about not shaking / moving when you're that close, those were taken handheld. The spiders were with a tripod.

Cheers and thanks for the comments

First there was the deer hunter, then the croc hunter, now we have the bug hunter.

First time I've seen hoppers of that color,must be something in the water up in Quebec! As always you 've done a superb job.

As far as my lens I'm using right now it is the Sigma 28/200 hyperzoom macro.

Does a decent job, but cannot compare to the 105.

Hmmmmm, maybe next week when my lens arrives I'll become a bug hunter too!:?
