This thing wouldn’t get off my lens while I was shooting a wedding in Winter Park a few weeks ago. Here’s something maybe not everyone knows about me, and I post this at risk of seeming like a total weirdo: I bond at least just a little bit with every animal I meet and every creature. Even snakes and things I don’t want to get close to. If I have an encounter with an animal, I feel like I enjoy even the most brief connection. It’s a weird thing. As I was flipping through my pics, I couldn’t just flip past this. I wanted to really look at it and I wonder weird things like, ‘is that grasshopper actually enjoying the sun?’ Or is he just existing? I swear it looks like he’s relaxing in this picture. Then I start wondering if that grasshopper is still alive, or did he get eaten or stepped on? And if he is alive, how far has he traveled? Does he have any friends? I may never know and I think these are the little things that make life fun.
