I wondered out in my backyard with my camera and I noticed something had been chewing on my paloma tree leaves. I almost didn't see these two katydids. It was like they looked at each other and said. Don't move. Maybe he wont see us. I couldn't get but one of them in the picture. The leaves on this tree are beautiful and the katydid seemed to blend in. Like they were camouflaging themselves.

Excellent. Mother Nature with some of her best camo. I think I might have experimented with a wider frame.

This is so well done. superb detail
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2005 05:44:57 AM
Wow! How did yo find this little bugger, he almost completely blends in. Only to nitpick, I am not really fond of the composition, both the angle it´s shot at and the fact that you cut off just a tiny portion of the backside. I don´t want to jinx you but if this doesn´t make it to the top 10 I would really be surprised. 9 from me.

nice focus on the katydid, colors are a great match to the leaf he is on. Good luck, Nice capture

8 - Excellent meet of the Challenge. Good colors. Criticism; difficult, as the detail is very good and would get 'lost' with a different crop likely, but would like to have seen the inclusion of the antennae (the one that has been cropped and the one that is out of focus), but a very difficult shot to get I imagine. Also the 'rear' too included would have probably made this even better in my opinion. Good capture in a seemingly natural environment.

11/17/2005 02:32:21 PM
Super picture for the challenge! The focus, color and composition are all just right. It would of been nice if that little bit of the bugs hind end hadn't been cropped off. Great job.

excellent camouflage image..color and dof are right on..I like the antenna angled out of picture, too..good work.

11/16/2005 09:45:51 AM
She sure did. Wow - if this isn't camo, nothing is. I wonder what adjusting curves would do to enrich it just a touch?? Nice DOF.

this is fantastic! Nice shot! probably ribbon! (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/16/2005 06:15:13 AM
Great focus on the katydid, blends in relatively well with its surrounding. If you could have captured it hanging amoungst the leaves it would have earned you more points. It's a great picture overall.

WOW! Awesome capture! Literally! This is great! I love the colors, the composition, the overall feel of the shot. I can't complain about anything, darn you! Guess that means I have to give you a 10!
