I went out again on the weekend and took a few more bug shots for the Weekly Challenge. I found some more grasshoppers on a reddish-orange gladiolus. Here are a couple of the shots I took.
I have recently been reading about the use of color contrast to bring more focus to a subject. I think the color of the flower really helps the green grasshoppers stand out better. What do you think? Here is another example. A yellow hibiscus flower positioned with a bright pillow in the background.
I also took a shot of a hornet that really liked the taste of the hummingbird food in my feeder.
I thought it might just crawl on into the feeder but it must have reached the food at this point.
Until next time —
