About to jump

Launch pad for a cricket

Launch pad for a cricket

I know this cricket is about to jump because I saw it jump just after I took the photo.

It looks like it’s peering into the abyss, whereas in fact it landed on the next leaf.

Crickets are very vulnerable creatures; you sometimes see them with only one hind leg, leaping valiantly.

They drown almost immediately in the pool. If you rescue them in time, they tend to jump straight back in.

This is my pen-pen-ultimate regular post on this site.
In fact you’ll already find this same photo, with different text, in Daily Reflections on our Self-Publisher Website.
So please go and follow me there!
