Hello Christodoulos,
On the spot focus and light balance is perfect. The unscattered background makes the White-faced Bush Cricket standout. Very well done.

Nicely poised against a nice background, excellent detail and focus. Good to see the whole insect including the antenae. Nice matching colours with the twig.
A very nice photo of this cricket.
