Tiny Red Cricket by garion Tiny Red Cricket by garion
After a long absence from macro shoot, I decided to have a go at it after some encouragement from a friend.

The picture is of a tiny reddish cricket like insect, barely 5 mm long from tip of head to abdomen, but with incredibly long feelers. I had to go down on my hands and knees to get this shot.

Shot at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, with EOS 20D, Tamron 90mm f2.8 Macro lens coupled with 25mm extension tube. Handheld.

Fullview for best results.
