Anostostoma australasiae (Giant King Cricket)

I cannot find a lot of information on the web about this not so little dude. But i can tell you that its nippers are the size of my thumb nail and it loves to jump!!! They reach a maximum body length of 7cm... not including legs! I know it does not sound all that big, but get a ruler out, find the 7cm mark and then imagine a cricket with a body length of that!

What equipment are you using to capture these shots?

Anonymous.......if you critise that's cool, but perhaps constructive critism with something to back up your point would be more appropriate. Where's your photography site???
