A Single Cricket
Yesterday we pulled two chairs in front of an opened back door to watch this. During that time my daughter looked down at the deck floor and saw a single cricket. Naturally I was taking pictures of the other commotion when I trained my eye on this tiny creature. At first I thought this was a grasshopper but the differences between the eyes and antenna's were significant enough for me to call him a cricket. I think he's a young one too. When he began hopping away I followed him across the deck with my camera as close as I dared for fear of him jumping on me and watched him leap from the deck in one single bound. The picture below was another favorite from this series as he seemed to be watching my closely.
