I’m a very keen amateur photographer, and shoot mainly images of flowers, insects, and wildlife – anything from tiny frogs and birds to koala and kangaroos, in my 3 acre garden and surrounding area. I love taking macro shots of insects or flower parts, and there is always something interesting to photograph.
I am submitting this photo of a Katydid, taken a couple of days ago in my back yard in Central Victoria, Australia
. Katydids are related to grasshoppers, and will often stay on the same plant for a number of days. This one is posing on top of a bud of an Anemone japonica
or Japanese windflower.
I shoot with a Canon 550D
, and I used my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens.
