    Default The zebra cricket

    ID: Cricket

    Spotted few of these along the small stream that flows through the trail, during the monsoon season. Though due to the overall dark colour, they seem to blend well in the darker parts of the trail, but at this particular moment, due to the bright stripes, it caught my attention and after a minute or so of struggle, eventually, managed to frame the beauty along with the stream water in the background. This particular one seemed to keep on creeping and hopping off the rocks, trying to stay as low as possible to avoid exposing itself to the predators.

    The black and white markings make it stand out, the 'zebra' name is apt . I liked the low angle and also the way you have framed it with the stream in the background. The antennae is so long, can be difficult to get it in the frame . It being parallel to the sensor has helped to get its body in focus. Nicely captured. Thanks for sharing.
