WOW!!
Don't know how I missed this posting, but glad I found it now.

Amazing capture, dvori. I've not witnessed this.

Waiting here in Wisconsin (had a deep freeze May 9), for nymphs to emerge.

 
Hi, Nancy!
Thank you so much for replying!
I hope you get lots of nymphs.
I wanted to ask you - for some reason I cannot find *any* O. varicornis this season. I think they are the most abundant species here, but they are missing (or I am not looking in the right places). :(
The only ones I have are highly inbred and mostly severely deformed (inbreeding, I've learned, is very harmful to crickets).
If you have any advice for me (again) I always appreciate. I don't know if a species would just vanish from an area, but I suppose it's possible. I also don't hear any at night, as I did all of last season.
