Exit, Stage Left

Since the grasshopper was getting nervous, had only 20 seconds to fire off three photos of this grasshopper. I was surprised there was not much detail or focus around the eye, but then the tip of the feet and the antennae came out well, along with tiny hairs on the head. Even though it's not sharp like I'd like to have, there was something delicate about this image.

 

The back end of this fellow is in the next photo here and shows surprising "architecture" and color in this tiny insect, only about 1/2" long. The photo previous to that shows the whole grasshopper.
