While perusing some bushes up in Port Macquarie, I was able to find this happy fellow staring back at me.

Cricket in the bushes

After a tiny bit of coaxing and some chasing later, I was able to get it to sit happily on my hand where I could very easily get a nicely detailed photograph from the side.

Then with a mighty leap the insect was off on its way to do whatever it had planned for the rest of the day. Presumably singing for a mate and chewing on some more plants.
