[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Crickets, family Gryllidae (also known as "true crickets"), are insects somewhat related to grasshoppers and more closely related to katydids or bush crickets (family Tettigoniidae). They have somewhat flattened bodies and long antennae. There are about 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs.

P.S. I dont know exactly what species of cricket this is. I will investigate in the future

Salut Anghel, este o larva de Gryllus campestris (o recunosti usor dupa partea interioara a femurului posterior, mereu rosie sau portocalie)
