Caption: Speckled bush cricket (Leptophyes punctatissima). Conceptual high-speed photograph of the release of this cricket from captivity. A cricket has well- developed muscles on its hind legs, but does not rely on jumping as much as its near-relative, the grasshopper. Its front wings are tougher than its delicate hind wings. The front wings are rubbed together (stridulation) to produce its distinctive high-pitched song.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
