Mole Crickets

The insects in the garden have had a good breeding year after all the rain. And now at dusk the mole crickets are firing up into a wondeful deafening song. Its great to hear them so loud again. There are several in the lawn, sitting snug in their burrows. I can feel the vibrations if I creep up close and can pin point the burrow entrances. The insects are several cm long, but seldom seen.
