It's not just cricket! by jamibann

It's not just cricket!

Having had a very busy week, I was delighted for Sunday to come round and have a quiet day for once - my main tasks for today being a jog and a photo. The jog was easily achieved, but I was struggling for the photo. Anyway, I went off out into the garden, via the back garage door and look what I found. A delightful bright green cricket resting on the door jamb. So, as the lighting was good, I started snapping away, when one of the little people came up and insisted on being in the photo! I mean, what's a girl to do? These guys are everywhere, I tell you!

Note to self : back garage door needs repainting!
How awesome that you could set this up. Very brave!!!

Excellent Issi and how wonderful that they both wanted to pose for your shot today. :)

How delightful! Ken and I are always in disagreement about painting things... I like the slow changes in decay. If there's a complete opposite to that, that's where he stands! And only in the last couple days, like you, I've had all the day to choose to do what I'd like. That's a pretty special gift, and I know we've used it well!

Cool image!!

Oh, this really tells how tiny these people are. Mr. Cricket was a very cooperative character to stay put while a miniature man moved in near him. Great macro shot, Issi.

Cool title! Nice that the cricket stayed around whilst you added the little figure.

Have fun with your new painting project.

Oh, I love this shot! Wonderful focus! As Denise commented, this cricket certainly does show how very small these adventuresome little people are. :-)

@taffy I'm afraid that painting project is a long way off - I'll need to wait until Spring now, I'm afraid! But it's on the list ...
