Purple Eating Machine

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Purple Eating Machine
Purple Eating Machine
Sigma 105mm f2.8 @ f/4, 1/250, ISO-400, focal length 105mm.
Looking for some flowers to shoot with my macro lens, I came across this monster grasshopper.
After a little research I found out it is a Giant Red-Winged Grasshopper, native to the rainforest.
This is straight from the camera.
