These are live Tree Crickets, and it is not a staged photo. It gives a nice comparison of the size differences and wing formations. Besides the obvious scientific value....they also look like they are holding hands ! :)

Love this!
Very helpful, besides being adorable. Thank you for your tremendous contributions to the knowledge base.

They make a good couple :)
Although I don't know about the way that male is looking at the female...
