Gotta do some research to determine exactly what type of grasshopper this one is! Photographed this morning at Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens in Washington, D.C. I usually like to diffuse direct sunlight when I’m doing my macro shots, but I had to work quickly to get this shot when I first saw the insect. I also shot some diffused ones once I realized it would stay still for me, but the shots with direct sunlight have a certain “oomph” about them.

What a great shot! I love seeing the nibbled edges of the plant, too. ~SueBee
