Froghopper on a Bramble Stem taken in quite bright sunlight. Tamron 90mm Macro f2.8 at closest possible focus i.e. 1:1 on Full Frame but this is on 1.5x crop too and I have cropped a little in processing, this little guy is small, perhaps 3mm long. Hand held, difficult to do anything else, difficult location access and they do hop around a lot as the name suggests. Used the sky as a clean background, exposure comp to allow for this.
Interested in any comments on technique.

What an amazing little beast, Nigel.
This kind of photography is so challenging. And must therefore be very satisfying.

First we learn Nigel's exposure techniques which seem to have worked to perfection,
Then we learn that this fellow is responsible for "cuckoo spit" - something we've all seen since childhood.
Cracking macro Nigel.

Well done, Nigel. In my experience hoppers hop and don't sit still for long enough to have their portrait taken.

If my memory serves, this is the adult version of the spittlebug, responsible for what we know as cuckoo spit, found on numerous plants.

A great image
