Grasshopper Madness

There is a patch of wild mint growing around my friend Willie’s house. In that patch of mint are innumerable grasshoppers. What follows is a selection of images showing the variety of colors, sizes and shapes these six-legged insects presented us with this afternoon…

Head on shot of a large brown hopper…

A reddish-brown hopper sitting on a leaf.

Another green grass hopper…

Another head on shot…

Had to follow this guy into the bush. Kind of a grasshopper’s eye view…All are shot on the Nikon D300s with a Nikon 55mm Micro lens with a +4 magnification filter.
