Click on the bug
I had no intention of shooting any more katydids.
Been there, done that, moving on...
Then I spotted this one that had gotten into the house somehow.
Hmmm, a lengthy and complicated photo session always goes better with air conditioning.
I was after a completely different pose, and only shot this one for a new banner as you can see on top of the page. (I like how it looks as if the white text is lighting the katydid.)
Well, I liked this picture enough to put it on my Flickr page, and it has shot right up to being my 3rd most popular photo in just 24 hours. And it's been Favorited way more times than any other photo of mine as well as making it into Explore. The Strobist himself faved it right away, and that has a lot to do with the explosive popularity of this shot I almost threw away.
The pose isn't even my style--I think that if Matthew shot bug macros this would be what they look like.
If you like green, stay tuned. I've been spending time with my various pepper plants this week.
