This image is also available at Lois Bryan at fine art america in an exciting variety of framing and matting options.

Having some fun with the macro/micro lens in my garden (Montgomery County, Maryland) the other day, August 3, 2009, I found this darling little critter (thought she was a grasshopper but have been told by wiser heads than mine that she’s a catydid) enjoying brunch. Loved the way she munched away on the flower thingie like a cob of hot buttered corn!!!!

Handheld image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 60mm Nikon macro/micro lens. Shutter 1/640, aperture f/13, exp -.33, iso 200. Minor cropping and levels work in Photoshop.
