First off, huge thanks to Carol (CarolG) for her wonderful User Award on the previous image…and to Lynne (LynneJoyce) for her very likely explanation of the droplets SmileSmile

Weird droplets they were, weren’t they? The only other time I saw weird droplets was HERE.

-----

Now then…here’s a colourful crickety character captured yesterday.

Is this a cricket?

I hadn’t really noticed the colours until I viewed the images afterwards on the camera’s LCD. Pretty thing, huh?

Once upon a time cricket was always played in whites; nowadays every team has its own individual colours Blush
But I never could tell the difference between a cricket and a grasshopper!

A beauty of a cricket.. Well if its not Mr Cricket it must be his cousin.
Great detail and wonderful monsoon atmosphere. Wish I was there... Nearly may now and still hardly any critters, +8° c now.
