Katydid with Pentax F 50mm 2.8 Macro
9

Took these today of a Katydid. I was taking photos of some 1940 family photos with it and decided to use it on the Katydid. Love the lens and agree it is one of The sharpest of the Pentax lenses.

This is a very cool grasshopper. Looks like a leaf. Very hard to spot sometimes.

Pretty amazing what bugs do to camouflage  themselves.
