Fun with a Hopper

I found this little guy out on a mimosa tree in my yard. Playing around with a strobe, I attempted to take some studio portraits and capture the insect's glory. The insect didn't want to sit still and pose, so around and up and down he went. He wing is particularly beautiful as it looks just like a small leaf. The natural world never fails to amaze me.
