[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Close to the Bounavaux chalet, there were a lot of criquets. This type of "mountain" criquet (Miramella alpina) live in middle and high altitude (higher than 1000m). As we can see on the picture, the male is smaller as the female (20 mm, 25 mm).

Post processing: crop and sharpen

M A G N I F I Q U E ! Quelle macro pour ce moment d'intimité animale. Couleurs et netteté spendide. J'adore votre photo !!!
Well done !

Chantal, Wonderful picture. The colours are contrasting well between the grasshoppers and the rocks. Sharpness and detail on the grasshoppers is very good. The strong green colours appeal to me.
Greetings, Jan
