Crcket Cricket


Don’t you just love the sound of crickets! Isn’t it relaxing, not just because it is rhythmic, but because of all the sensory pleasures it stirs, because you know crickets only make that sound when it is warm, when it is Summer, and Summer feels so good.

I was wandering through a field near my house and I could hear crickets everywhere around me, but trying to get close to one was quite a challenge. As I walked they darted around. Zip zip zip…. boing!

Finally this bold little fella (or fella-ess) took pity on this giant and very undainty, unzippy human and posed briefly for this shot.
