Grasshopper & Dragonfly images from VLF competition
Posted By: Marc Langille, 09-21-2008, 09:53 AM

I did not submit these images, although now I am wondering if I should have submitted this dragonfly image... NO cropping in either image...

Grasshopper - this guy was getting REALLY irritated with my using the flash. Eventually he jumped onto the camera...


Crop of the grasshopper's head for details - this is only 50% of the actual size:

EXIF info:
Date Taken 2008-05-10 00:00:00

ISO 400
Focal Length 200mm (300mm 35mm)

Dragonfly - I was close to the MWD (minimum working distance) of 11 inches with the lens:


I do like the fact that you can clearly see the "truss" structure within the dragonfly's wing...

That grasshopper looks positively menacing or even maniacal! He is evil!

Creepy stuff indeed.

Thanks for sharing.
