What a Tangled Web…

I am so very glad that I got the chance to get out and make images yesterday.  The weather was supposed to be reasonably good today, but instead we have had cloudy skies pretty much all day and thunderstorms are on the way.  No complaints.  As mentioned in yesterday’s post, it is bone dry around here and there is no such thing as “bad rain” in South Texas.

So instead of trying to get out when there was little to be found in the way of photographic subjects, I instead have worked on a couple of blogs posts, processed a few images,  consolidated and sorted some data from hard drives I salvaged a few months ago, and celebrated World Backup Day by doing my periodic image backup.

I’ve discussed backing up images on this blog ad infinitum, ad nauseum.  If you’re not doing it, start.  If you are doing it, do it more often and make sure you are doing off-site storage.  ‘Nuff said.

To my Christian friends I wish a very Happy Easter.  Fingers crossed that we get some rain in the next week and then some sunny skies for next weekend.

About the Image:
You would think with a lead in like a tangled web that I’d go with a spider.  Nope… not this time.  Instead, this unidentified grasshopper was one of my favorite images from yesterday’s photo shoot at Medina River Natural Area in San Antonio.  A little extra green might have made him stand out a little more, but when at full-size you’re counting the number of hair-like structures on the specimen, you know that you’ve hit the focus dead on.  Shot with the Standard Gear.  Tech details are ISO 400, 1/800 at f/8.
