May I Come In? by taffy

May I Come In?

Walking into the house this morning, I almost stepped on what I thought was a leaf, when I spied an antenna and a leg. Looking closer, this little fella is what I saw. I put the macro on and came back out to photograph him. He conveniently clamored over a leaf (with a little encouragement by placing the leaf in his path.
Processed with Color Efex to boost the details, but he was already that green.

This has been an amazing day with two photos on TT and all your wonderful comments. Thank you so much for your support that made that happen!
Such a great point of view on this little guy!

He is a cutiepie with his yellow stripes! I wonder what team he plays for!
September 28th, 2013  
Your focus is just perfect! Love it!

Beautifully captured. Stunning color contrasts. I think the processing works great. The yellows place the photo clearly in autumn.

fantastic macro
September 30th, 2013  
@busylady It was big for a bug! I think it's called a katydid and it's about 3" long. But it looks so much like a leaf that it really isn't scary. I had to get really close just to get its head to show.
September 30th, 2013  
How cool! Wonderful macro. You can really see a little face there. Who knew!? Love the colors, too!
