Bug on a Mint Leaf


I caught this little guy hiding out on one of the mint leaves in my mother-in-law’s garden. He had a little buddy with him, but he scuttled under the leaf as soon as he saw me coming. Until now most of the pictures I’d taken had been with the Canon 50mm lens I’d treated myself to when the Impish Husband bought me my new DSLR. This was shot with an older 28-80mm lens I inherited from him. It’s fun being able to pull things in a bit closer with this lens and having more freedom with framing shots. I had to peek in through an opening in the leaves to get this shot without sending him off to join his buddy on the other side of the leaf.
