Closest view I have ever had of a house cricket, Luc! Such sharp details on this little bug. Beautiful colors on the insect as well as in the background. A fantastic shot!

Superb warm light Luc! Something so common and... ugly ;-) like Cricket looks beautifull on your photo. Details and textures are excellent. Diagonal composition and blurred BG complete the picture.

Superb macro Luc.
Details,colors,lighting are wonderful.
Very clear shot!TFS...:))
Its not at all similar to our common cricket. Lovely macro shot, Luc. Exceptional DOF and sharpness. Very strong composition too. It looks like a juvenile with the short wings? Great shot, well done.

Hello Luc, I like this POV as your cricket is on this diagonal slope and "appears" to be moving upwards..The warm light illuminates all the anatomical structure of the cricket, displaying it very well. Well done my friend
In 1976 I was in BC near Golden. As we were driving down a very treacherous stretch of road, I caught a glimpse of movement on my shoulder. Looking, I saw the most horrific creature making its way towards my neck! I screamed (I am pretty sure it was a scream) for the driver to stop the car, NOW!
Before completely stopping, I jumped out, the whole time trying to dislodge this furry monster from my clothing.
By the time I was out of the vehicle, monster free, I found myself on the narrow edge of a huge mountain, looking straight down into the "bottomless" (ok, so there was a bottom, but it was very far away) abyss, just a couple of feet from mine. I searched every nook and cranny of that vehicle and could not find the hideous creature that had almost cost me my life and sanity.
I got back into the car, and we continued on our way.
About a half an hour later, guess what I saw crawling up my leg!? This time he stood no chance and finally (it is pretty gruesome, and only a few would really like to hear this, especially before breakfast!) I was rid of him for good.
Now, the only reason I mentioned this little story, is to say this: Luc, your cricket brings to mind a memory of a very interesting encounter with a species looking a bit like yours, only it had a furry back end and was gigantic. Yours is much better and quite tame looking.
An excellent capture. Your lighting is very nicely presented and such detail in your subject! Thank you for sharing it with us.

Personal assessment of the photo: perfect.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: very good.
The perfect DOF in th foreground added to the beautiful lighting is very nice, Luc. Thanks.
