I thought they only come out once every 15 years or something like that? What the heck was this one up to . I didn't know they even have them here. I can hear them whenever I go camping up North, but not usually around here.
It's about an inch long. Kinda camouflage coloured. I'll take some pictures if anybody wants to see, but it's not really anything special. Just the first time I've ever seen one.
