Long-winged Bush Cricket Macro

Two firsts for me:

1) Shooting a movie of any kind (film or digital). I don't even know how to stop recording (apart from switching off) and have no idea how to edit.

2) Attempting to give access here

Male stridulating* (at 1:1)

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, sunlight, hand-held.

Still frames are posted elsewhere (more to follow).

* With my hearing aid in, and it is set to restore high frequencies lost due to ageing, I could just hear a faint hiss/rustel with my ear about a food from the cricket. There is no way that a kit microphone in a camera would pick that up at shooting distance
