This grasshopper lives in a bed of ivy in the corner of my front yard. I’ve seen it a few times over the past few days, and was able to track it through some tall grass to make some macro shots late in the day. This is one of my favorites, as it puts this little creature firmly in its environment. The telephoto reach and internal focusing of the Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro kept a working distance that didn’t panic my grass-hopping friend. Canon EOS 5D and Sigma EF-610 DG Super E-TTL, angled downward for macro capture. 1/160, F4.0 ISO 100.
