A curious visitor

by Berckmans Peter July. 16, 2020 337 views

At our home we only have a small terrace and my wife made a small garden on it. Mostly herbs and other green things to eat. She came in and said ther is a visitot on the balcony. This sort of grasshopper is not one I have seen much around here, I think he had a reststop here and did himself a meal of some fresh greens.

Sadly it was going dark already and did not had to much time to take some pics. My macro lens is completly manual and I had to push the iso a bit up. In the first photo he or she was looking straight into the lens. I think mister hopper saw himself in the glass of the lens and was coming closer and getting very curious.

The lens used is a Samyang 100mm macro f2.8

Really nice macro especially the last shot you can see all the details of his wing.
