lovely portrait of this cricket with perfect sharpness and nice low pov. Imho the compo is too much centered and a more dynamic compo following the rule of thirds would even improve the picture.

Nice macro of a Mole Cricket, a rare species in Sweden that I have yet to see.
You used the bright sunlight well and had the optimum DOF to allo wth cricket to show sharply. Nice natural BG and satifying composition.
Well done and TFS!

you made a good job with a difficult animal: brownish, unelegant, ugly Gryllotalpa. And I am pleased you gave it a break! TN is so much more interesting if people don't concentrate only on flashy butterflies. Thanks for presenting it.
PS: I like the animal!
My best regards

And finally something entomological ;)
I have to say, that I observed Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa only some 5-6 times in the wild, so your picture is really interesting for me. It is not easy to find this species, and to take a good picture - really very difficult :)
As I see this is a larva, so the specimen was also small (another points for good macro!).
Finally I am grateful for interesting note, I did not know that in this family are only 4 species! It is rather unique especially among Orthoptera families :)
Best greetinsg from Lodz!
Ps. One more point for taking this photo in Poland! ;)
