    I hate bugs. Of any kind. But you know they are not so scary through the lens of a camera...

    Here is a weird looking grass hopper I came across visiting a train museum! He was so nice, posed for me, turned, looked up, down, haha

    Interesting looking fella :)

    While I think they are all great shots (nice and clear.. good use of DoF), something doesn't sit well with me on #2. I think it might be the angle of it. I cant quite put my finger on it.

    These are lubbers. A poisonous grasshopper that eats only select items and not everything like a locust. We get them here in the gazillions. They sometimes litter the roads. The juveniles are more yellow then one day they shed into the black and yellow.

    Cool thread with some interesting info. Never heard of a lubber.

    The first one has great focus but a big of a distracting background. I prefer the second pic but wish the focus was just a tiny bit forward and maybe with a deeper depth of field. Good stuff. Using a macro lens?

    No! In fact I was using a 35mm!!! I really want a macro lens! I think I would use it more then I know.
    But this guy was pretty big, I mean at least 4 or 5 inches long...

    yeah,
    more contrast in the photos would help. As well as a smaller aperture.
    But this is just peeping.
    They look really nice.
    Never seen any of these weird dudes.
