By clive burrow
Apologies to those who commented this evening on my earlier Sunflowers shot where I'd been playing around with blending modes.

However I caught this little fellow this evening in the garden and hastely set up a small home studio to take some shots before returning him/her back to the grass.

Studio set up was pieces of white card, twig in an oasis. Lit by handheld flashgun off the camera.

1/8second @ f8.

Excellent detail in the cricket and nicely controlled exposure. I'm in two minds whether I like the pure white background though, it gives it an abstract feeling
