Chichara comiéndose a otro insecto.

Realmente, como habéis dicho no es una chicharra, sino un "grillo de matorral" un tipo de ortóptero. Aún así mucha gente las llama chicharras si bien no se parecen entre sí.

El insecto está apoyado con las patas sobre el piorno.

Gracias.

Nice pose and nice colors.
Composition focus and DOF are nevertheless waisting the potential of this pic:
- subject is much too centered. Too much irrevelent space left and below. Leg is cut above. Antenna is cut on the right.
- focus is on the belly but should have been on the head (eyes are soft). DOF doesn't include the head and include too much of the background , which is distracting.

Vaya, pues no me había hecho yo idea de que las chicharras fuesen carnívoras. Me ha sorprendido la imagen. Esta chicharra negri-amarilla me parece además muy curiosa.

Is it flying? or crawling? How big is it? it seems like it's a monster crawling after it caught its prey!
Focus and composition could be better.. colors can be a little more vibrant too. I'd also suggest a different crop. Agree with Nephrotomes about the leg being cut off.
Good attempt..

Nonca pensé que hubiera grillos carnivoros, curiosa escena.
Un poco mas grnade no hubiera estado mal, para poder apreciar mejor los detalles. Salu2.
