Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge: Macro

It’s Macro Monday at Lens and Pens by Sally.  I have seen and been around grasshoppers my whole life but I have to say that until I moved to Florida I never saw them this big (and creepy). Taken with my iPhone5. Some adjustments were made in Snapseed to the first one and Fotor was used for the black and white.

    That’s a good capture, Linda. I like the colored one because it shows me the character of the grasshopper. 🙂

    The Snapseed result looks so excellent. I might try it out some time.

  3. He might be creepy, but he’s beautiful.

    Awesome..i do love the macro world we have around us 🙂 great pics 🙂 hugs Bev XX

  8. Great shot: it almost looks like the grasshopper is asking: ” whaaaat?” Gorgeous! The black and white has a whole different atmosphere, that is fascinating.

  9. They may be creepy but your photos are fantastic..

  10. You’ve brought the insect world up close and personal. Really well done. They both have their own appeal.The macro image in monochrome reminds me of those Japanese movies with the invasion of insects. Happy Photo Challenge.

  11. Excellent photos, Linda! I like the one in color, but the B&W, as Sally said, looks like something from a sci-fi movie.

    OMG! What did you do to your iPhone 🙂

  13. Amazing images, Linda. 🙂

  14. He is incredible Linda!! wonderful macro!

  15. It’s amazing to see the close up with macro photography Linda, I was surprised by a snail myself lately! Both edits are really great, but I think the snapseed one just tops it for me. 🙂

    One of these days I’m going to figure out how to use the macro thingy. These pictures are outstanding.

    • Since I don’t have a macro setting on my iPhone, I’ve been thinking about checking out the lenses you can use with an iPhone. But I haven’t gotten around to it yet! Glad you like! 😀

  17. I don’t know that I would have recognized him as a grasshopper–he’s terrifying! (Great shot though!)

    • I wouldn’t have found him but he was just outside the pool screen enclosure and one of my cats was standing and looking out the screen. I just went to see what was so fascinating and found him! 🙂 I don’t like the grasshoppers here. They may be colorful but they’re big. Give me the little green ones any day! 😀

    I love it, Linda. The colour version a bit more 🙂
