Survival Of The Fittest:-I have captured this fighting picture in our yard.I don't know this two species.The big one I think a kind of cricket.But I am not sure.
Wish my TN friends can help me.
Light was very low due to rain.I had to choose 1/40 shutter speed which was enough for destroy my picture.This two species were very fast anf flying quickly.So my weapon was timing and good hand.I have captured it at last.
Thanks for viewing..

Hi Srikumar.
It is great that you managed to picture so attractive dynamic scene. Unfortunately, I also do not know any character of the play. However, I can say that sharpness of the main subject, blurriness of the pictorial BG and colours of the image are excellent. TFS and best wishes.

Impressive scene from nature! I never have seen a wasp attacking a cricket. But here it is obviously the case. Powerful composition to underline this dramatic moment.
Well done
