Good Evening

Well today I got a free moment and I did something I have not been able to do in 3 weeks, cut the grass. There where places on my property were the grass was over 4 foot high! With all the rain followed by intense heat I was unable to get out mowing, and it takes roughly 5 hours to cut all the grass. But the good news itís done, the bad news is I killed thousands of potential photo subjects! It was unbelievable, as I was riding the mower weaving in and out of trees I watch thousands of Praying Mantis, Grasshoppers, Butterflies, Frogs and an assortment of other creatures fleeing for there lives. I almost stopped cutting the grass; I was terrified I was going to kill my next EC potential! Wink Oh well, its done and they all have a reprieve for the next 3 weeks when I have to cut again. See you out on EPZ, later.

Greg

My setup when shooting:

1. This was shot late in the afternoon, around 6 PM.
2. I used a tripod no remote.
3. Since the grass was cut and only patches of tall grass left, the mantis were easy to find.
4. Had both cameras with me, one with a 60mm macro, and the other with the 150mm macro.
5. I will say I had difficulty focusing again, however I noticed how much easier it was to get more of the creature in focus when using the 60mm.
6. Again I used a blade of grass to coax the creature into some different positions. The creature was not harmed in the making of this shot! Wink
7. This time I took roughly 100 shots, and I would say that about 50% were good this time. I think I am getting the hang of it now.

Fantastic shot as per usual, a great pleasure to be number 30, they are usually in the 50's or 60's before I see them. All the extra details make very interesting reading.(you should really produce a collection/book of your (and Cesies) work).

What an amazing image, Im glad this little chap managed to escape the big cut. You have managed to get so close, I always though they would just jump off and that would be end of the photo. So well done capturing this beauty.

Stunning shot, I really think you have a bit of Dr Dolittle in you, your subjects always look as if you've just asked them to pose - lol! Wonderful work.
