Image: Female Spotted Katydid Nymph - Paul Farley
As the katydid gradually walked on a rose towards the camera, a small water droplet began emerging from its mouth, which I thought was quite rare and surreal looking. I knew I would need to be very careful to keep her head in focus as she walked toward the camera while continuing to focus manually and aiming for a pleasing composition.
