A Day on Merganser Lake
This insect and I had a fun battle of wits the other night. I was trying to get a macro photo of it, which requires getting very close to the subject. Every time I got close, it turned to the face the other direction. It didn’t fly or jump or crawl away, just turned its body to mess up my angle. The bug clearly underestimated my persistence as I stuck with it and managed a few decent shots.
I’m not sure what this insect is. I’m guessing some sort of grasshopper or cricket, but I’m certainly no expert on bugs. Anybody know for sure?
Great shots! How large is this guy? Inch… less? Hard to tell on leaf.. it was doing a dance for you!

Less than an inch. It was pretty small but took up a lot of space with those legs.
