Behind The Lens

I took this photo on my rose bushes in the yard. This little guy was jus waitin' to be in front of my camera!
It was actually taken in the middle of the afternoon.
I used my fabulous diffused Canon Speedlite here.. (430 EXII)
For this picture, I used my 70-200L lens.. and three extension tubes attached to my camera. I had my speedlite on the hotshoe and started shootin' pictures!
This little Katydid was jus sittin' there.. waiting for some attention. I decided to be the one to give him that attention! and now.. his face is famous! Lol
Added a slight sharpenin' here to this guy.
In my camera bag
Multiple batteries.. and cleanin' cloths.. My 18-55mm kit lens, 70-200L and my 10-20mm wide angle lens. my three extension tubes..and my Speedlite!
These Katydids are TINY.. so my advice.. look closely.. and approach slowly so you don't scare them. They're pretty easy to work with other than that! This guy jus sat there for about 20 minutes, then he moved to another flower. Yes, I followed him, LOL! Dedicated photographer and all, cough ! ;);)
