I finally found the culprit eating all our tropical palms out back …. yes, it was a green grasshopper. So I grabbed the Canon 7D and macro lens for a couple of quick snaps. Here is my favourite below.
The grasshopper was photographed with a Canon 7D Digital SLR + Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens.
Shutter Speed 1/125
No flash was required as it was the middle of the day with plenty of light. The overcast day however was an advantage as far as colour goes. Truth be known, overcast days are my favourite for photographing macros as the colours are always at their best!
