work of the month

Holsteijn_Maulwurfsgrille

 

The mole cricket (Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa) is named after its ability to dig a passage through earth by shovelling away the soil with its forelegs. Holsteijn’s depiction is naturalistic and accurate. It shows the variously articulated rear segment of the body, the close-fitting wings with their black veins, the head shield, the head with one of its eyes, the two ‘shovelling’ feet and the four other legs.
