Macros are great, they let you see things you can't normally see ..... if the photgrapher is good! I can see the barbs on the legs they use to "sing". Great shot.

I didn't know they would bite but the claws would certainly hurt. I think he really looks like one of those metal sculptures!

Nice detail, hollow.

Biting your fingers, eh? Little terrorist - must be one of those Yemeni crickets.

well, the detail isn't as much as I would...it was kinda difficult to shot with one hand and in same time to have the other invaded by this little beast !

Thanks for comments.
