20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Grasshopper on Tissue Paper

I found this grasshopper unexpectedly in our closet on October 18th and it made an artistic photo impression that triggered the imagination. The tissue paper it was crawling on was situated in such a way that it looked like it was crawling up a steep snowbank bathed in sunlight. It may have got in through the window screen and stayed long enough for me to shoot a few pictures with flash before making its escape to the outside world. I would like to think it had as much fun playing with the tissue paper as I had photographing it.
