One Photo A Day | Day 253 | Grasshopper Portrait

One photo a day challenge: Day 253.

I often set out to create photos with something in mind to photograph.

But I am always hoping that something at least a little unexpected will happen.

There are some things you can plan for and some things that you can’t.

The best you can do is hope fore the opportunity to arise.

Then you have to be prepared to take advantage of the situation.

I was photographing flowers.

Hoping to see some interesting insect subject to photograph aloing the way.

There was lots of movement in the yard.

Tiny creatures everywhere.

But no one was staying still for a photograph.

Then there was this one grasshopper.

The grasshopper was perched atop a dead flower blossom.

The flower and grasshopper were the perfect height above the ground for convenient and interesting photography.

I like how this grasshopper portrait turned out.
