The Bug in the Stump

It took forever to get a picture of this little guy, mostly because he was a fast one and had already moved out of frame by the time I got the camera focused.

The Cricket on the Curtain

leave a comment »

We get a lot of crickets in the house. Supposedly, that’s good luck. My mother loves to let them hop along in the basement, keeping her company as she does the wash. Occasionally, they follow her up to the kitchen. Not as often, they follow me from there up to my room (above the kitchen). This little fellow is the first one I’ve found alive up here (found plenty of cricket corpses, though!).
