Description
Last spring, I was out with friends in one of the local state parks here in Florida. I was taking photos of my friend's daughter and the incredible scenery of the park when we discovered two very large (4-5 inches), colorful grasshoppers. I actually coaxed this little guy onto some Spanish moss and he sat there quite patiently for us to observe and for me to shoot different angles of him. In this one, his colors were striking against the grayish background of the moss. The moss made a nice, soft bedding for his "Afternoon Siesta."

Taken with a Sony Cybershot F717 digital, high resolution, macro setting, 10x zoom. Minor adjustments were made in PhotoShop.
