I found two of these Cave / Camel Crickets in my yard today (family Rhaphidophoridae). They are huge (over 6 inches if you stretch them out - body over 1 inch long).
These guys are the reason that early humans moved out of caves and into garden apartments. I'm also pretty sure this explains what happened to the stray cats in the neighborhood.
I think that this species buries it's dead. Once or twice a week, I hear them chanting in my basement and smell incense burning.

India is the world's #1 'cricketing' nation. From the time the little boys can walk, they play cricket with whatever may be available and in any space. Lots of fun for them and spectators.

An early morning shot taken at Lake Baratz in north east Sardinia back in 2013.
I was going over some older images when I found this one which didn't look that interesting initially which is probably why I ignored it first time around. No idea which species it is.
Best viewed large.
Cricket can be considered as a seperate religion in India such is the widespread popularity of the game in every part of country. All it needs is a bat and ball and few people. The local cricketing rules changes according to the terrains the game is played. Here few locals playing the game on the shores of ganges in Varanasi while the spectators keenly watching it.

Crickets, of the family Gryllidae, are insects related to bush crickets, and, more distantly, to grasshoppers. The Gryllidae have mainly cylindrical bodies, round heads, and long antennae. Behind the head is a smooth, robust pronotum.

I spotted this cricket, hiding in plant. It's missing one of his legs, but that didn't seem to bother him in keeping the balance and to jump away after a little while.
I found this cricket originally on our garage door. It turned out to rather enjoy eating lavender.

A cricketing moment immortalised in bronze of bowler Jason Gillespie throwing a fast ball to batsman Darren Lehmann, as a spray of water from the sprinklers waters the lawn between them at the Adelaide Oval.
Sunday afternoon cricket match at Chatton, Northumberland. Although it looks a threatening sky it's a pretty warm day and the rain never appeared, for once!
This is just across the lane from the Chatton Trout Fishery, a great place to learn or enjoy fly fishing and get a great bacon butty....and yes, I've had a few bacon butties and lessons in fly fishing ... just need to catch a trout now...I can catch a bacon butty... no probs! :))
Zoom in to see the great action from the bowler... and the batsman!
Happy Fence Friday :))

GH-23M (foreground) and GH-23F Infantry Dropships
A small craft, the Gaerlan Heinz-23 has been a
versatile and invaluable part of the The Corps' offense and defense since its introduction seventeen years ago. Multiple variations exist, but the most used is the GH-23F [background] This "Cricket" variant can carry up to eight Devil Dogs, a pilot, five fully armed and/or two injured on the bottom wing pylons.
Almost every Marine currently in the Corps has flown into battle strapped to the side of a "Cricket".
Very little armor makes this dropship incredibly fast and maneuverable, even fully loaded with troops.
Alone, the GH-23 has limited armament, just two blast cannons under the bottom wings. However, a veritable cornucopia of weapons systems can be attached in lieu of (or addition to) battle ready Marines, in essentially any combination.
The versatile weapons payload, ability to quickly pick up or drop off troops, and sheer maneuverability (not counting that they were ridiculously cheap to manufacture) made the GH-23 "Cricket" a favorite among The Corps brass and also the Devil Dogs they carried into battle.
We have bush crickets in the UK but not really in the frozen north where I live so I was very excited to see a few on the path at Lemoine Point - a quick change to my macro lens, take a few shots and then explain myself to the bemused Canadian regulars who were a bit perplexed at my interest in such a common thing!
Just playing cricket with my son at our roof top....

Crickets, family Gryllidae (also known as "true crickets"), are insects somewhat related to grasshoppers, and more closely related to katydids or bush crickets (family Tettigoniidae) and Weta (families Anostostomatidae and Rhaphidophoridae). They have somewhat flattened bodies and long antennae. There are more than 900 species of crickets. They tend to be nocturnal and are often confused with grasshoppers because they have a similar body structure including jumping hind legs. Crickets are harmless to humans.
