Sigma 70 - 300 1: 4 - 5.6 APO DG - first decent Macro shot - I'm impressed

Focal point was the eye/head area - at 300mm in Macro, this meant the focus box in my viewfinder was about the size of the grasshopper's head...LOL

I was about 12 feet away from him, hand holding, SR was on.

Click to enlarge - then look in the upper-right to see the link to the full sized original (6MP).

Excuse the excess exif data - I copied & pasted from my PC...I don't think I had things set up optimally for the light today (bright, direct sunlight).

Exposure time 1/250 s
F-number 22
Exposure program Shutter priority
ISO speed ratings 400
Exposure bias value 0
Metering mode Spot
Flash Flash did not fire [off]
Focal length 300 mm
Colorspace sRGB
Scene type Photographed image
Custom Rendered Normal process
Exposure mode Auto exposure
White balance Auto white balance
Focal length in 35mm film 450 mm
Scene capture type Standard
Contrast Normal
Saturation Normal
Sharpness Normal
Subject distance range Close view

I should add, I'm open to feedback and other thoughts.
