This little locust nibbled happily on some berries while I crawled around trying to get a good shot of him. Usually they are shy and will hop away if I get too close, but this guy had more important things on his mind.
Yet another desert locust. This one tolerated me for a short while before backing into a hole. Unfortunately the hole was too shallow to hide in so it crawled back out and hopped away.
Here's a tip when trying to photograph dragonflies. If you spook one away, just stay put, it will probably return shorty. (thanks Sepintx) . Not only did this dragonfly return, it landed even closer. When I got the shot I needed, I moved away, and it followed me, landing just infront of me. Too cool!
I had a semi-decent picture of this Cabbage White as it tiptoed across a flower, but if you've ever seen them, they like to fold their wings up together. I snapped this picture halfheartedly as it fluttered away and was pleasantly surprised by the result. The butterfly itself is not focused, but it still made for a delicate image. (thanks madcobug for the butterfly link).
