The Vegan (II) - Carnival Outfit
OK... I'm not going to torture you with bugs shots for much longer :-) I'm not a fan of bugs myself, but I'm just thinking that many of the beautiful birds we love wouldn't exist if bugs weren't around.
I present you with a macro taken during my vacation in Mexico, with my retiring Canon S90. This monster grasshopper (4+in long = 10+cm) looked dark and somewhat scary with its wings closed, but the presentation was a whole lot more interesting as soon as its wings got in the jump/flight position.
