Leaf Critter – Katydid

I spotted this little fella/lady on my postie run, lucky I always carry my camera!

I first tried a focus stack, but that didn’t work because he kept moving and the camera was hand held. This in the one shot from the stack where his eye was bang on in focus. Oly EM1 II; 60mm Macro; 1/50 sec; f/4.0; ISO 200.

Below is the cropped in version, click to zoom any pic.

And as second single manual shot:

    1. They do look a little alien, but he was friendly! I wasnโ€™t sure if he was looking at me or the tattooed girl who started chatting to me about cameras!

    1. Thanks ๐Ÿคฉ Though I havenโ€™t done it, Iโ€™ve heard you can pop bugs into the freezer for 10 or 20 minutes, doesnโ€™t kill or freeze them but slows them down for a bit.
