Grasshopper, Nuthin' Special

I had a staring contest with this grasshopper for half an hour. It didn't blink once, so I conceded. Canon 30D with 180mm macro and 1.4 extender with a monopod and tripod chair for me.

Re: Tussock Moth Caterpillar

Ya, rarely see Tussock moth caterpillars 'round here, mostly Cabbage Whites and Forest Tent caterpillars with the latter having an incredible population explosion every fifteen years or so which freaks out the local citizenry.

Re: Water Drop - for AIP

Yup, done crowns which I personally didn't find "exciting". I am in the process of getting a custom aquarium built for doing water drops with fluorescent dyes (via markers). The glass (Starphire) allegedly is clear and optically flat vs regular aquarium glass.

Re: Water Drop - for AIP

I thought about glitter then I thought about all the specular highlights that would drive me nuts/crazy. True about metallic paints gumming up valves.

Re: Water Drop - for AIP

I've done the acrylic paint (normal and fluorescent) and even fire. Lighter fluid worked the best but me thinks I will not do that in the house again. Flames got over two feet. Not too worried about the ceiling catching fire but the MiIOPS unit. Problem with a single unit is that one (meaning me) is...
