🌾 Grasshopper outfit 🦗 | Photo52 week #9: Macro

in #photography4 months ago

Hi there :) I hope you're having a wonderful day!

Today, I'll be sharing with you this picture of a very tiny grasshopper's old skin, after getting a change of outfit for spring as my entry for the 9th week of the Photo 52, 2020 challenge created by @wwwiebe.

This week's theme is "MACRO"! And I'm a sucker for those.

20200215_133227-01 I recommend opening in full size to see details the best.

I mean, just LOOK at those minuscule legs!


I took this picture one day I was feeling quite unwell, I had the flu and my grandma told me to bring her some leaves from the backyard to make me some tea; oregano, rosemary, lemon grass and pennyroyal. In my search for this last leaf, I saw this extremely small clue that a little grasshopper had been there.

I had to take a picture. So I grabbed my phone and geared it up with a cool set of lenses I got from Amazon a while ago to take macro photos that I can carry everywhere (because I indeed am a sucker for macros).

I took this other picture without the lens to give some perspective on how really small it was.

To me, anything so small and adorable is worth a space in my blog. It is just so cute. I hope you enjoyed seeing the gift this tiny friend left for us to remember grasshoppers also change of skin! :)

I have some snap-on lenses for my phone, too, though my favourite is the fish-eye. I need to take more of those. I really like that you took the picture for comparison purposes. That's a tiny grasshopper!

Thanks for entering! I bet that was a really tasty tea your grandma made you.

Those lenses have saved my life multiple times,they are so useful, and they were quite affordable too!
Thank you for your comment and for creating this awesome challenge, I think it's genius. And yes indeed, that tea was awesome ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ grannies always make everything better.
