Grasshoppers on Minna-Jima Ain't that Big

This Bug Still Pending ID

 

Three quick shots today will show how I nab these critters.

If someone knows the name of this grasshopper it would save me a lot of work.


First, I'll show a screenshot of the photo enlarged while it's being processed.


This is what the scene really looked like when the shot was composed.

The Sigma 50-500mm lens is at 360mm.

Center (spot) focus, is what I use to eliminate the motion of grass, blowing in the wind.

The cross-hairs you see in these screenshots, is not what I see through my viewfinder.


This is the final product, after development.  The photo has been cropped.

The grasshoppers on Minna-Jima ain't really that big.

But, you can make them larger that life-sized, if you really want to scare someone.

I should start making refrigerator magnets.

There must be millions of fat people who could use them to get their diets under control !
