    Shot this guy in the front yard this afternoon. Critique is always welcome, especially in regard to the dof. Still trying to get this macro stuff down ... any suggestions appreciated.

    Thanks! -Tex

    Now that's as close as I've ever been to a grasshopper. The face is very sharp and detailed and the DOF is a little shallow as it looks to be blurring a little of the face on the right side but still a great shot!

    Thanks for the comments everyone. Getting good dof is tough with macros. If anyone has experince or advice they are willing to give please let me know your secrets. Thanks again!

    *Disclamer- This was a shoot and release, no bugs were harmed in the shooting of this photograph. :wink:
