Hunting empty trails, launching from tangled
airstrips into a world just out of reach,
a cricket waits for the wind to break.
Carolina Ground Cricket | Eunemobius carolinus
Excellent composition, love the roller-coaster impression.
Awesome shot, well done.
Rick, the composition is breathtaking.
Crickets chirping, they wait for their audience before starting their starry symphony. Music made to invoke memories of sweet summer nights, if you listen closely…
This moment, this capture: pure poetry, my friend!
Thanks Diane. Hard to keep up with crickets.
Really cool shot! Love the colors and interesting composition.
Rick, Is that the true color for those crickets??? Or is it something you’ve photoshoped in? Very interesting….
The color is more intense, Merrill Ann. But they are more translucent when I backlight them like this.
This is absolutely awesome. Love the verse, the colors, and the framing… Excellent post, Rick…
