Chirps [May. 28th, 2016|11:37 pm]
A mild night has sent insects flying. A crane fly was buzzing my screen door, and when I came back inside a moth fluttered next to my ear. Even a small moth can be quite loud when it is right next to your ear. Right now a small black insect of some sort is hopping around my monitor, crawling ever letters and then flying to some other part of the page. It's very distracting, but I don't want to run it off. For the moment, I'm happy to see the bugs back. I'm sure I'll be annoyed soon, but right now I'm enjoying their company.

There were more bugs about this afternoon, too, including some more butterflies— not the same to I saw yesterday, but smaller and darker. I still haven't seen any monarchs though. There were a few bees about, of course, but so far no flies. Thankfully I haven't seen or heard any mosquitoes or gotten any bites yet. I'm sure they'll show up soon enough.

I hear several crickets chirping now, but not so many that they blend into a chorus. Currently they remain distinct, individual voices— or stridulatory organs, anyway. Well, I suppose they could be considered voices, even though the organs are external. However they do it, big crickets make a very relaxing sound. The small, screechy crickets won't be out until much later in the year.

I'm also hearing a single frog croaking. I hope it doesn't eat any of the crickets. Stick to eating the mosquitoes, froggy!
