King Cricket

15 Sep

I had this big cricket hanging out in my garden for a few days, but I haven’t seen him for a while. I call him King Cricket because he’s so big. He has these really soulful eyes, and I just love to look at him. He has stripey legs, but I think he may be missing one leg. Anyway, here are some photos of him in my little back courtyard. I wish I had more zooming power, oh well!
