    Default Hopper nymph on water spider orchid



    I was photographing this particular orchid (Habenaria repens) when my colleague pointed out a small grasshopper nymph perched on one of the flowers. The flowers themselves are just a little over 1 cm from top-to-bottom, so that makes the nymph just a few millimeters in length.

    Hopper detail:



    Canon EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi), Sigma 105mm macro, tripod. ISO 200, f16, 1/80th sec, natural sunlight.
