Dark Bush Cricket - Pholidoptera griseoaptera

This image was taken in the early morning at East Harptree Woods in Somerset on the 22nd July 2012.

 

Every now and then I attempt some shots of Crickets, getting a sharp image is not usually a problem, particularly in the early morning when there has been a dew, but getting both of the antennae completely in the frame and reasonably sharp too, is often a step too far.

 

This was taken shooting towards the direction of the sun to give a slight silhouette effect and emphasis the antennae.
