What more can I say, Brian, other than SIMPLY SUPERB ! Superbly composed with the Bush-Cricket posing perfectly for you. Superbly detailed with terrific textures and colours and softly blurred pastel bg tones to die for.

PS. The "cricket" badinage made me chuckle Smile

I do like the light background here Brian - it sets off the cricket very well. Super detail and terrible puns - ok, I admit to a small smile. Smile

I'm fed up with this cricket puns GAME and wish it were OVER, because it's always hard to MATCH Ed, he's such a good PLAYER, but it's great SPORT, and we have a BALL. He CREASEs me up with his puns, and is always a HIT with me.
This image SCORES with me, Brian, and DELIVERS photographically, as usual.
