I am Warning You!!! View magnified if you can..

One more flash and I will fly into your face! And by jingo's I should have listened. Nothing like a pissed off Katydid flying square into your face.. Granted I was on the ground in front of her, but still I should have listened! I have been wanting a prime lens (not sure what one is), got out what I thought was a macro lens I purchased a few months back, Can anyone tell me if this is a prime lens? How would I know.. It's an AF-S Micro Nikkor 40mm 1:2.8G.
Thank you for all your comments and views. I am still trying to catch up!
This green science fiction creature should be on the moon, not here in front of the camera! Well done!

Hahahaha!!!! If it makes you feel any better, I got stung by a bee trying to take a close up of a flower. It hurt a lot for about 8 hours. Ouch!!! ;-)

Wow would have made me jump. I have that lens also and love it even for non macro shots. Just a beginner but if I have my facts straight a prime lens is 1:1 and this lens is 1:2.

Ha-ha, he does look pissed of.
October 9th, 2012  
Oh wow! So cool! I've never seen one, not sure we have them here.

That's a great head-on perspective! He seems fearless! A great capture. 8)

Great image. I was looking through your photos and noticed you did not have many reflections so that is my challenge to you.
October 9th, 2012  
Fab capture and great perspective! =)
October 9th, 2012  
Great capture..
October 9th, 2012  
Lol!

@la_photographic I can do that.. Reflections in a mirror? or water?? or windows? anything??
October 9th, 2012  
What a face! Great perspective.
October 9th, 2012  
Haha .. Brilliant .. Love the way he has one foot up, ready to jump
October 9th, 2012  
Delightful, funny shot! Fav! :D
October 9th, 2012  
Very cool shot. Don't envy you the attack, though... ;-p

You are right, this is taken with a prime lens ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_lens). For some reason some macro lenses are also called 'micro' by the manufactor. I'm not sure why.
