Grasshopper, macro lens







Grasshopper on the screen door this afternoon. Macro photography is tough -- even when the insect is holding relatively still and the light is decent. 




Top pic was handheld, the second and third with the camera on a tripod. I used my Nikon D5100 and Nikon DX 85mm macro (Nikon calls is 'micro') lens.

Check out my SmugMug site for more of my work, prints and licensing info. To save 20 percent on the cost of a SmugMug account, please click here. SmugMug lets you customize your page and sell prints and licenses -- unlike, for example, Flickr. I also think photos look better on SmugMug than Flickr or Facebook due to the way those sites compress big files.
