I don't photograph insects very often but sometimes they just present a pretty photo. While waiting for some Seaside Sparrows to show at the marsh I saw this grasshopper up at the top of the marsh grass. The sunrise sky in the background was rather pretty so I just went ahead and snagged a shot. You can see my basic edit of this photo in the video below.
