In mid chirp. On an artichoke plant, but to tell you the truth they were all over the garden and not on any plant in particular

This photo is even more amazing than the photo you took...
...last year! It's beautiful. Yes, this is a Broad-winged tree cricket, as evidenced by the bright red extending up the antennae.

WOW!
Had no idea they existed. Might I see them in Ohio? Loved the recording and going further found the video on your feeding the hornet queen. Whoa! Why?

Beautiful! Nicely done.
