    I shot it from so far away with the 200 Macro that I never even noticed the Grasshopper until I was reviewing images back at the house....looks obvious in these photos here, but it apparently blended in with the other 'green slit lines' in the middle of the flower enough that it never caught my eye from several feet away when taking the shot.

    Canon FDn 200/4.0 Macro, NEX-7, AP Mode, Spot Metering, Daylight, ISO100, 1/100, F11

    I get that all the time. Comes with the territory when you shoot flowers. :)
