"Naughty" grasshoppers.  The 23mm lens has rendered this nicely.

Actually it was taken with the Sigma sd-Q-H using an "incompatible" Sigma 70/2.8 macro lens (on account of that was the only camera I had with me at the time, and, according to the gods of photography, this was then the best camera to be using :) ). I was actually at that location with a completely different purpose in mind when this amorous pair hopped over my boot as I walked through the long grass, and I thought it unusual enough to see to be worth trying a shot, even if it meant taking it at the apparently decreed as prohibited for Sigma speed of 400 ISO. They were pretty small as hoppers go - less than two inches long for the larger one.

Alan, I must get my eyes seen to - nowhere do you mention a 23mm lens - my bad! :o

It's listed as my favourite lens under my Avatar, Hugh - my guess is that's where you saw it written, so no need to see the optometrist just yet.... :)
