Thanks, Carole. They look so delicate for a cricket. I am used to the big dark, robust version!

You couldn't dream of a better background!

At F3.2 I'd say the focus was spot on and it's the dof. Beautiful shot.
Guest 03-Jul-2007 00:23
Great macro. I really like the shallow dof on this one. V

Most cool! V

Well, I think you did pretty well with the focusing. I never even see these things, let alone photograph them!
