I can see why you were laughing so much it's the crickets blank expression that made me laugh.

Had me laughing too, Carol: what a marvellous situation to witness.
Reminded me of a Goon joke in which Spike's character ( whilst playing a non-com in the Army) was asked to use his binoculars and report what he was.
"Nothing, Sir".
"Well, go up that small hill and report what you see now".
Breathlessly he arrives back and when asked states "Still nothing, Sir, but I can see it much better".
Funny how an image can trigger a memory or an event, and this excellent set did that for me today.

Superb! Very well captured Carol, and I think you have chosen the right one as the leading shot. Very amusing! What I want to know, however, is how much do you pay them to pose for you? Wink

You can see in the crickets eye's a wary look for either you with the camera, or the itch on his leg
brilliant and congrats on the UA ..well deserved for this

LMAO...oh man...this is AWE.SOME.

Carol, you got the order right. V1 deserves to be where it is. Utterly brilliant capture and my laptop's been jiggling 'cos it's partially rested on my tum and I've been chuckling so GrinGrinGrin

So weird that the cricket doesn't mind! Insects are SO bizarre.

You've already got 3 UAs but screw it, here's another one Wink
