[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Crickets, family Gryllidae (also known as "true crickets"), are insects somewhat related to grasshoppers, and more closely related to katydids or bush crickets (family Tettigoniidae) and Weta (families Anostostomatidae and Rhaphidophoridae). They have somewhat flattened bodies and long antennae. There are about 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal[1] and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs. Crickets are harmless to humans.

Hello Foozi,
The saturation of this black, green and red colours is very high. Superb bright contrasts in a great choice of composition.

Hello Foozi,
Beautiful specie.You have captured it nicely using Macro.I like its sharpness,focus and pose.I like the way you have represented it.Even you have taken its full antenna.Well captured.
But,Foozi,with due respect colour and light is looking little bit bright to me.I am novice in photography,but as a viewer it's not looking natural.
May be I am wrong.

Hello Foozi,
An amazing capture of a bi-coloured creature with a long antenna,beautiful fresh colours and a lovely composition.
Thanks and my regards,

Hi Foozi,
Huh, what an interesting pic you've done. Experimental (but very pleasant) composition with the ultra-long antenna, perfect sharpness, colors and DoF, most of all proper exposure. I don't know how I missed this majestic photo when you posted it. Incredible image! Bravo!
Best regards, László
