Grasshoppers (Three Photographs)

It’s fair game that farmers and gardeners have some issues with grasshoppers. I have found them in meadows, in nature reserves and they are fun to shoot. A grasshopper defense is to jump and freeze in motion after that first jump. The trick is to watch where they jump and land. Assuming you move slowly, they catch your eye and move to take a closer look at you while hanging on to their refuge. That’s when I start shooting. From experience I know that they will stay put for some time and you are likely to get bored before they do. If you see a grasshopper there are usually many more around. They like the edges of paths and so you can stay on the path and still get shots like this.
