today we were sitting outside and someone noticed this little grasshopper on a piece of wood that greg was going to use for a bookshelf .. of course i ran in to get my camera and took a few photographs of him .. i then put him in the grass and took some more .. !!
used an overlay of a dandelion that i photographed the other day .

this is the same grasshopper after i'd moved him to a safer place in the grass .. i reckon he's looking a lot happier, he was looking a bit anxious on the wood .. !!

Fabulous shot - the overlay was inspired and gives a wonderful 'organic' starburst effect.

I love the direct stare - it makes it look really up close and personal.

Great shot Roz.

Awesome shot. I love the star effect from the weeds, and the excellent details of the hopper.

Dang!! That is downright magical! He does look kinda cute. Like you can almost imagine those droopy eyes -- like basset hound eyes, huh?

Wow! I LOVE that lighting!

Hopper looks quite evil in this one...they seem so prehistoric to me. :)
