Artist's Description

A tiny fat cricket that was in my kitchen,
making his way waving his long legs about towards
my camera, he was so cute, then when I went to take him
outside he disappeared under the fridge.
I pulled the fridge out for fear the surface spray would kill him.
The next day I found him struggling for life,
I carried his now weak body outside and placed him in the garden all the while praying his life would be spared.
Later that day.. he was gone!
Was he miraculously healed?
Or did those damn garden variety ants take him underground?
I guess I’ll never know.

When I was taking this pic he was moving quite fast towards me so this was the only one that came out without the total blurring.
Would have loved to capture the complete body, legs and all. :0)
