I'm impressed by your new camera and the way you used it to get this great shot of this Tree Weta cricket. I assume it is a pretty large insect.
The Sharpness and DOF are top class with the POV and BG being excellent.
As you found it in your garage I think you were right to set up a studio to take this, though the TN TOS cast some doubt of this method of photography.
Thanks and kind regards,

Beautiful and unusual insect. Excellent capture. You new camera does well...
WOW! I knew that Lumix would be great in your hands. Did you pick it up with your hands? The insect I mean. Your image is fascinating. I have often heard tales of bugs from OZ and NZ....Great show. Hope never to see in person.

It's a scary beast!!! My heart jumps terribly when I find one of these wetas Steve...
This fellow looks quite gigantic - especially his head. And the BG material looks very natural - and a much warmer place than outdoors.
Great shot - you must be thrilled with your camera.

Hello again Steve,
I looked at your photos, to see when you began with the Lumix and macro lens! ... I think that this level of approach is more suitable for the combination. The result is wonderful! ... What details! bravo! Good job! ... And what an amazing insect! ... Thanks for sharing, I look forward to more pictures!

Very nice well focused and composed photo. We found a similar species in Papua New Guinea tha lived inside old dead bamboo. They had very large and strong mandables and I am sure could inflict a very painful mechanical bite. TFS this unique species.
