I saw this handsome fella yesterday in amongst the long grass, and managed to persuade him to pose for a couple of shots before leaping into the hedgerow.

Fantastic image!!!

Only a few hours ago i thought to myself, not seen a grasshopper here yet, you must have read my mind.

This is a stunner though. The exposure is spot on id say, as the many green shades on him are so prominent, in fact i didnt realize how beautiful they were.

Love it!
