After a hectic day, I come home, and find this little green friend sitting on a pile of clothes.

For the next 3 hours or so, I kept bothering him, and he kept posing, looking at me, climbing on my lens and flying around. And I kept experimenting with the strobe and various lengths of the extension tube on the 50 and the 105.

And Rushi helped by holding the strobe at various distances and angles to get the correct amount of flare.

I let him go in the end when Suhas came home and declared that he is petrified of grasshoppers!
