I made this photo last August and first presented it as a lustre float wrap during the month of October in the Oakley Auditorium Gallery at Ivy Tech Community College-Wabash Valley in Terre Haute, Indiana. It is on display through February at the Halcyon Art Gallery in Terre Haute. For exhibit I titled it “A Tenacious Nature.”
Captured this camouflaged critter warming up in the morning sun atop a garden statue in my front yard. Maybe the fact that it hears through its belly explains why I was able to sneak up or it?
I used the Fujifilm Finepix T555 I bought my daughter to take on her summer class trip. The pocket camera has 16 megapixels and a 12x zoom. The grasshopper has tiny single lenses in the thousands x2 and a 20x broad jump.
