singing





garden serenade

music of chirping crickets

farewelling twilight

Crickets have sung most evenings in our front and back yards during Summer and now in early Autumn. They especially love water being sprayed around, either when we water the garden or when it rains and this brings on the chirping. They are elusive little things and are rarely seen. On really hot nights an occasional juvenile cricket will make its way through the gap under our outside wire mesh outer door. They are vulnerable, very soft insects and we know they are young because of the brown colouring. We never see a black adult.

    1. The crickets are in our suburban yards and the sunset photos are artistic licence a little bit. Often there are great twilights as the crickets sing but from our yard there is no photo opportunity.

    1. It seems there are differences in their habitat Janice. Ours are underground and rarely come out on the ground. They have almost stopped and the end of March means one month into Autumn. The Ravens are coming back now though.
