Beautiful photo Alex! Good composition, wonderful colours and impressive sharpness. Beautiful note too. Your Cricket is a female Decticus albifrons (Fabricius, 1775).

Great shot of Cricket, the cropping and composition allowing a full view that takes up the whole extent of the image. Nice contrasting leaf BG and superb sharpness.
Well done and TFS! Regards Siggi

Another nice photo. Very good details and colours
the grassopper and flover too. Fantastic contrast against the blue background.
I greet granddaughters!
very nice story on how that image was made. You are a lucky man with such loveble companions! That huge cricket is shown with excellent details, well served on a plate of lush leaves. Composition probably might be worth trying a version with slightly less space at the left and a little bit more space in front of the insect to add further tension - if that is intended. A very clear and colourful, perfectly well describing and sunny high quality presentation. Thank you! With best regards from Vienna, and all by best wishes to you!

It's always so good when you can share your hobby with your children / grandchildren. I think your granddaughter's choice was great, this is a nice shot. No need to re-sharpen in my opinion. Colorwise it has a little blue overcast (just slight), but I'm satisfied with the composition, because the main elements, which grab the attention of the viewer (head and antennae) are perfectly in the right third of the image. Next time, if you want, you can share the young lady's pic as a workshop photo also, when you make photo sessions together. Just an idea.
Best regards, László
