The giant grasshopper – not much liked around these parts of the world.
Spiked to the hilt on their hind legs. But it doesn’t stop them falling prey to many birds, reptiles and amphibians.
Camera: Olympus E-30
Lens: Sigma 105mm Macro
Grasshopper posed without hesitation on my fingers.
Photo shot in the back garden of my Southern Cairns home…
As macro should be – UNCUT!! Non cropped and un-edited – this is exactly as you’d see a grasshopper’s hind legs if you were that close and that small… There’s nothing more to it really :)
