Cricket in photo[edit]

That might not be a field cricket. —This unsigned comment was added by 71.171.129.207 (talkcontribs).

I'm no expert, but it's labelled as a field cricket and used to illustrate such on several projects. It also went through a featured picture candidacy on en.wp in 2005, which it failed, but the label was not questioned. In summary, it looks as though lots of people think it is a field cricket and so unless you're sure it isn't then I think it is safe to leave it labelled as such (or replace it with a picture of something that definitely is a cricket of course).
