    Nice pics...though some could benefit from some cropping. :P

    That pic of the grasshopper was fun; spotting it in the mulch. Makes me wish I had a picture of the 5" Locust I saw in texas once...but alas, that image exists only in my memory. v_v

    Love 'em though. Keep 'em coming if you've got more.

    Thanks! I know that some could use cropping, but for some reason transferring them over from his computer to mine made them much poorer quality, even though they were taken with his DSLR, so cropping them makes the pictures horrible quality, even though doing so on his computer doesn't... The mysteries of technology haha
