My love of taking photos of bugs is not much of a secret here at The News. So, when I had a free moment a few days ago, I decided to set out and see what I could find. A quick trek to the flower garden outside the Carey Park entrance yielded a few lively creatures, including this tiny green grasshopper. I snapped his photo using one of the macro lenses we have here at the paper. In the near future, we hope to have an extender tube which will allow us to focus even closer on these little guys. Something I am more than happy to give a try. If you can’t find me, check the nearest flower bed.
