    These certainly aren't my best photos I've ever taken, but I thought I'd share them with you anyway. If nothing else, I figured some of you might enjoy seeing this fat-bodied beastie.

    I kind of wish the bugs around here were colorful like that...

    But nice photos. :) Maybe a tighter/different crop on the second image would look better in my opinion....

    Bus Rider, I'm kind of torn on the tighter crop for number 2. If I cropped it any tighter, it was kind of hard to tell what he was actually sitting on. With a slightly wider crop you can easily tell it's a camera bag. Not sure which one I'll stay with yet. I think the buckle might be a little distracting, so I might crop just that bit and a little more off of the bottom out.

    Since you say in your profile that it is not ok to edit your photos, I will share my 2 cents in text...

    I see your point of view... Perhaps a portrait orientation instead of horizontal?

    My photos are not OK to edit without my permission. The Almighty Whootsinator grants His permission in this instance. Edit Away! [/pretentious Kingly voice]

    I actually like that one better. It seems to draw the focus a lot better. The only thing that bugs me is cutting off the carrying strap, and it coming back into frame... But if the image is cropped to include the strap and still remove the buckle, the grasshopper isn't framed well, and is staring into the end of the image on the left... HMMM

    I still like it a lot better. I've made the original invisible in my photostream and uploaded a slightly wider crop than yours on the original:

    Sorry for the quick double post, but I did another crop to get rid of the blue-gray color on the left of the crop. Which do you guys like better between this and the one above?

    I like your crop. :)

    I cropped using the standard 3:2 (2:3 in this case) aspect ratio. But I think yours works well. :)

    Thanks. Looking back through this thread, I see that I've made the images universally unavailable... I was hoping that even though the images were blocked from my photostream, I could still share them with a direct link. Oh well.

    Thanks again for the comments, and leading me to a better image! :hug::
