Hello Ana,
Special photo in nice sharpness and beautiful colours. Funny to see all these crickets on one flower. Maybe they want a yellow dance floor. Good DOF in the photo.

Hi Ana'

Absolutely outstanding shot!
One cricket on each flower petal. It seems a serious discussion. You've capture it very nicely.
Well done & TFS.


Hallo Ana,
what a fantastic image, very good sharpness and splendid natural colours, a very nice composition of this unique "concert".
Have a good weekend
Ciao Maurizio

Hello aNa,
Very good trickery here, or is it cricketery, but you do not fool me. It is one of those tricks that one does with mirrors, starting with one image and ending with lots.

No, a truly fabulous natural image (no trickery here) and what a great discovery! Amazing! Why would they all visit the same flower, or were there many of them on many other flowers?, and why are they all facing the same way as if rehearsing for a concert? What is known is that they all play the violin.

Well seen and well captured with very good quality. A pleasure to view.

Hi Ana,
this is really incredible and beautiful photo!! Like a picture! Perfect point of view, very good sharpness. Amazing colours and composition.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello Ana

Excellent timing to shoot these 10 crickets in
the same image, with fine POV, excellent focus
sharpness and details, if it was me i would keep
this photo and post it to my 10th TN anniversary
because of the 10 insects in the same image, TFS


Interesting and beautiful scene Ana!

Ana - a lovely capture of flower and the crickets. the POV and DOF is really excellent. tfs

Hi Ana,

What a unusual entry today, lovely colours and fabulous composition,
Congratulations Ana and a wonderful weekend,
Best Regards,


Hello my friend aNa! How are you? Let me congratulate you for this incredible capture! truly unusual and rare event at least for me! Good .... NO ...Great!
However, when you look the image in detail you should realize the obvious fact that your white balance has been set inappropriately ... Right? Just have a look ... if you go to Hue/Saturation tool in Photoshop and increase the saturation of the image, you will see the heavy yellow cast in the frame. I often use that trick in Photoshop in order to "check" how accurate is my white balance. If the overall image does not have any color tone which dominate totally around above the others in the frame this can indicate that your white balance is fine! In the workshop I am presenting you my version which also can not be accurate 100%. All this color changes should be done before reducing the size to the one required by Treknature preferably in post processing from RAW format! However I know that your camera does not support RAW! Have a great day my friend!

Bonjour Ana,
Image charmante avec tous ces bébés sauterelles se promenant sur les pétales d'une belle fleur jaune. Une image vivante et qui fait plaisir à voir. Tu aurais pu éventuellement augmenter juste un peu le contraste.
Je te souhaite une bonne fin de semaine et un grand merci aussi d'avoir visité ma galerie.

Ciao Ana, great copture of a lot of little crickets on a beautiful yellow flower, splendid natural colors and excellent sharpness, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hola Ana.
Primero gracias por tus amables y constructivos comentarios a la fotografía de los abejarrucos.
No se que esta sucediendo ya que cada vez me quedan menos nítidas las fotografías cuando las cargo
en Tn... y no logro saber el motivo.
Hábil y original tu captura, con una bonita disposición de esos pequeños "saltamontes" y belleza en los colores. Quizás algo apagada. pero nada grave:-)
Un abrazo: J. Ignasi.

Parabens,muito bom it's funny...
ciao Francesco
