|Recently spent a week in the Transkei region of South Africa and these little fellas populated the surrounding grasslands - quite frisky they were too .... Grasshopper lovin' image to follow ;o)|
Hi Matt glad to see you managed to get this image posted, what was the solution in the end?
the details in the inficus area are stunning as are the vibrant colours.
getting the tail sharply into focus would of made the image perfect the use of a higher F. stop say around F11 or even F16, I find it worth shooting such images at all these settings if you get the time to do so the pick the shot you perfer when you get it up on the big screen of your comp.
TFS hope your problems are over, yours Robert

What an amazing looking Grasshopper you have captured here, don't think he has very good camouflage though!, lovely shot with a great POV and a nice pose, good details, with well saturated colours too.
