I came back newly and now I can visit your last posts. This is very nice shot for interesting looking cave cricket. Nicely focused and composed. I also took several ones similar cavernicolous crickets in last summer. also I saw today one in Radomir's post. I am sure that he will like it very much.
Thanks for sharing, best wishes

Caves have this very special quality to, for the most part, remain a constant environment for all sorts things both human and insect. I have read of N Indian Sanyasin who have lived in caves unbeknown to most and at high altitudes for many years....so to me...investigating inside them by another such as you....it is something I will not do in this life...but to see it through your eyes is fascinating. And beyond that, the image is fine..Will you help contribute to the cause:-) Panasonic G1...I may even give up video to get one...being the beggar I am..
