Golden Hopper 2002
Photograph - Photography
The singer in my son's band caught a grasshoper the night of my birthday and excited, handed it to me in a glass jar David gave him. Not that hot about an inch size hopper since I really only fancy what I normally don't see around and those that I can see only through the G3's viewfinder. Anyway, not to disappoint him, I took time to shoot the hopper the next morning and discovered that it was a golden brown hopper that I normally don't see around. Also, the same time I shot those tiny hopper-looking creatures whose eggs were being devoured by the black and red ants, I found this tiny half-inch green hopper whose front is really pointed. Not easy to shoot a hopper in a glass jar because of the glass' reflection and the macro lens not able to hop closer to the creature. Also, shooting a pointed hopper frontal just blurs everything beyong his front head not matter how closed the aperture is.
