[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). They have somewhat flattened bodies and long antennae. There are about 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs.

Hello Roberto,

Very nice picture of this colourful cricket. Good POV and DOF. Well done.

Great detail in this macro! I love the colours and the DOF is managed very well also. It is cool also how you have one plant framing the shot and another providing a diagonal to keep the shot dynamic. Very interesting indeed.

Hallo Roberto
I have never seen such a beautiful and multi coloured metallic grasshopper. A super macro shot. Clear and bright details. The big eyes is just spectacular. A very special photo, and most enjoyable to look at. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
