Long Legged Insect
On a photo hunt day I came across this six legged hopper on some yellow flowers. The yellow flowers really gives a pop to the image creating a nice contrast and separation with the green insect.
The weather was a little gloomy but with an external off camera flash it was not a problem exposing the image. The only problem was with the wind, which was kind to me this time.
