I spotted this long legged character hopping around on my balcony late one evening, so despite it being dark, the camera had to come out with flash activated, and I grabbed a couple of shots before he jumped away to find some peace for the night. V.3 is my contribution towards the Saturday shadows theme.
Have a great weekend, everyone, I will be off to the beach shortly Smile

Excellent shots of the two crickets, so perfectly framed considering how long their antenna are - I would undoubtedly have managed to cut off the tips!
