Yip, couldn't ask for a better pose, Carol, and two very fine detailed shots of Mr. Cricket: love those striped eyes.....they remind me of striped boilings called Everton Mints we bought as kids.

The pose is excellent - great detail Carol; I do like the pose better in v1 but I think the detail is slightly (very slightly) better in v2. A great capture. Love Ronnie's idea of his eyes being like Everton Mints! SmileSmile

I try to resist anthropomorphic reactions, and fail. The pose of that right elbow is so elegant, like someone leaning against the back of a chair.

These are great Carol, if a little scary! I'm torn between the variants: I like the composition of #1 but also the greater crispness in #2. Hmmm... cannot decide...
