Photo of the Day - 9/4/2014

As I mentioned on Monday, I found myself easily distracted while shooting hummingbirds.  Below is one of the distractions.

I saw this grasshopper sitting on a dahlia and thought I'd try and get a good grasshopper shot.  And, I think I did.  The colors of the flower also work well with the grasshopper.  What I hadn't expected (or totally realized) was how the antennae look.  I had no idea that the antenna is two or three times as long as the body.  Other grasshopper shots I have don't show that.  I guess they break off or something.

Anyway, I chose this particular shot because it shows the antenna off as well as the insect.
