_MG_2100 A New Generation Begins

These tiny (at least for now) hole maker makes a charming subject. My experience in the past with these katydid nymphs is that they tend to stay put on a plant, so they're easy to photograph...but you really do need to use a tripod and manual focus.

Well done and I agree about the tripod and manual focus. I also use a shutter release cable that seems to help a lot.

Gorgeous! And the water drops are stunning!

Bizarre little creature but a fun subject. The water drops add interest too.

Adorable! Honestly, I think these little critters are cute--as long as they don't get on me. Terrific shot, I love the water droplets.
