It seems to be the cricket season - I've seen four Bush crickets (at least I assume they are) in and around my house in the last two days. That's an old picture above of a Speckled bush cricket, which I've blogged about previously. Most of my current crickets are in the dim corners of my porch, where they seem to like to congregate for some reason.
Amentsoc.org has a wonderful page on grasshoppers, crickets etc. that just taught me a load of interesting new stuff. Very much recommended.
