I'm glad Lillian asked the question.... Of all the insects and creepy crawlers, I love crickets the most. This little chap is so colourful - and well behaved.

That dangerous looking blade at the rear end denotes it as the female.Smile

Thanks for your interest.

Just about the most outstanding to date, Brian! Wonderful composition, detail and textures. Terrific light and colours. Love the delicate pastel shades of that glorious clean background. This fearsome female with her broadsword is favouring you with her best pose ! Grin

Like the title, Brian, and the cricket was quite a sport to pose so beautifully and not run away, so you could catch her on camera so perfectly. Love the frilly skirt on the flower, too.
