During the day, working in nature,
Searching for water source,
In the dry, dusty, dirt...
A good sign appeared,
Then vanished within mere moments...
A Cricket!... baby one, at that too...
Gifts of kindness bestowed of the ancient tree.
Wood sprites opens another portal,
All is well.

Camel Cricket...

associated with moist habitats such as basements, caves, cellars, under logs and similar places.

Omnivores which are common, known also as "Spider Crickets", even more commonly known as ''Camel crickets", and "Humpback Crickets"... completely harmless.
nature.mdc.mo.gov...
Chinese favor them because...

Chinese farmers have relied on crickets to signal the start of planting season, and celebrated the crickets with poems, fables and paintings.



The more crickets invade a family's home, the wealthier that family will become.
Home: residence...I meant

Food for baby chicks amongst other species of life forms... or simply kept for sound purposes,

Dreams are vital during rest, at anytime one may slumber, cricket sounds bring comfort and may signal change in weather, a soft rain brings good rest... be kind to snack food, crickets🍣

They say you can tell the temperature by crickets. The warmer it is, the more they chirp.

Used to hear crickets all the time, don't anymore. Haven't seen one for a while either, except at the pet store.

Crickets, Frogs, Cicadas, all measures of a healthy ecosystem, gone.

I've got plenty up here in Quebec. They crawl all over the place and jump around when I walk out of my house.

I live almost right in the middle of a forest. Got crickets, frogs, cicadas, and also deers, raccoons, foxes, salamanders, partridges, and humans. Guess which species I tend to kick out the most. Hint: it is bipedal... and it (thankfully) does not fly.

Mega urban sprawl. I walk my dog five times a day, including after dark.

Have to get out the city one day... trapped.

I live in a city on the east coast and I still get crickets in my yard. Those hideous camel crickets in the cellar and cicadas in the trees. I found two cicada casings on my lawn already. I think it's one of those seventeen years. When there are lots.
I don't hear them yet .

I have raccoons and opposums and deer here in the city too.
I once saw a deer at a busy intersection looking like it was waiting for the light to change. About a half mile from an 8000 acre park it probably called home.
Opposum and raccoons live in the trees or if theyre lucky someone's attic. Rabbits squirrels too. They like city life.
People=food
