Crickets!

A grasshopper, safe for now

A grasshopper, safe for now

These days when I empty the skimmer basket of the swimming pool, my wail of anguish can be heard:

“Crickets!”

They’re lovely creatures and I hate to find them drowned.

They’re also frustrating because if you rescue one, it seems to do its utmost to jump back in the water.

This insect, hidden in a crack of the front door, is actually a grasshopper, distinguishable by its short antennae.
