    I like no. 3 the most. It's so hard to make acceptable macros of this kind of insects. If you show the hole insect you lose some of the idea with macro and if you go close to the body you cut these long antennas :D

    The one who takes a joke only for a joke and seriousness only seriously he and she have got both badly. Grook by Piet Hein in my poor translation.

    Thanks for the comments Jorgen. Yes these crickets are particularly difficult as they lay out flat on a leaf but I wanted to show the translucence of the body.

    3 for me, but the others are very good too
