Tiny Cricket Close Up

Tiny Cricket Close Up

This cute tiny Cricket was patient enough to allow me to get close - really close, and take a photo on the leaf it was standing on. Note the tiny "hairs" on the leaf - this should give you an idea on the amazing magnification taking place here.

What do I like about this photo? The incredible details and magnification - we can observe things that are not visible with the naked eye! The wonder of nature. The shallow depth of field makes the front of the cricket in focus along with front of the leaf, and the background blurred, for a nice effect.

What would I want to improve? More details, naturally, would have been nice. Some deeper depth of field might also have helped.
