Dot Dot Painting Crickets - Aaron Fanous

I took this photograph in the Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve, NT by bending around the subjects and manually zooming and focusing. I found the subjects on one of the giant 'marbles'. The Ranger later told me that the larger one would have been a female cricket carrying a smaller male on her back; possibly a mating behaviour.

Hello, Living at a remote mine site Woodie Woodie I've had the pleasure of seeing a beautiful Dot Dot Painting Cricket. The Pilbara region has many insects I've never seen before in my life. With my excitement I have 3 close up pictures if your interested. Anyway in my excitement. Have a great week.
