Cricket on the hearth

Cricket on the hearth

One day a couple of weeks ago, I went to the front door and looked out. We have a little broom that sits by the door on the porch out here and sitting on the top of the broom handle was this little cricket.
So I did what anyone with a camera would do, then opened it up in Photoshop and added Pioneer Woman's seventies action. I think because I was feeling groovy at the time.
I love feeling groovy.

I love that action, and your photo has such beautiful light in it! And everybody knows crickets are good luck, so maybe you should be buying a lottery ticket or something...

Intelligent click because if broom word was not mentioned I would have thought it is for sitting where the cricket is relaxing.

Cool shot!

I love PW's Seventies action. I think it's nearly perfect for all my outdoor shots of the boys.

And I used to say groovy a lot in the late 80s. Until this guy I worked with started saying it. Not groovy. :)

Now I have that song stuck in my head! Great capture. Did you use a long lens or was he a brave cricket and sit still for a macro lens?
