Saddle-backed bush-cricket (Ephippiger sp.) Montenegro. Taken near Slasko lake about 10 km from Albanian border.

PS. I have problems to change Poland into Montenegro. No other option but Poland. What is wrong?

Wow, Mark, what a macro shot! I am amazed and fascinated, looking at all the details, spikes, antennas, legs and sticks all over the cricket! It is beautiful, you make me like it even more now that I know what it looks like from close. Great macro work, sharp and bright, superb!

Hllo Mark, wonderful portrait of cricket with fantastic details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hallo Mark
Wow this is a real close-up. Not just a tiny one. A real big and glamorous one. I am sure if I start counting I'll be able to tell you how many fine hairs and spikes are there on this insects paws. The detail of your photo is really stunning. This is a wonderful example of a good macro shot. Focus is spot-on. Thanks for sharing. It was most enjoyable to look at.
Kind regards
