European mole cricket study

European mole cricket, life study. An unusual subject for me....A friend of mine found this impressive insect in his garden and brought it to me. I`ve used a magnifying glass to study it and let it then free. The painted image is three times the size of the original . Attached also an other study of a mole cricket I`ve painted from a dead specimen back in 1993

On my way back to the car I spotted in the small half-frozen lake in the front of the Palace among many Tufted & Pochard ducks, a Ferruginus duck, a real rarity for Germany...
