Snowy Tree Cricket

Found this guy hanging out on my African Violet. First I had to make sure it wasn't going to eat any of my plants, but he actually feeds on aphids and caterpillars. The nymphs, however, do eat flowers and such. Besides, crickets are supposed to be good luck.
I didn't want to use the flash because, at close range, it just washes everything out. I turned on all the lights, grabbed a flashlight to use as a spotlight, and turned the ISO on high. I probably should've used a smaller image size, because these turned out a bit grainy.
Still a pretty cool bug. He was a bit more green than these pictures show.
