Hi Nancy: Here's one for you to identify. Looks like a good year for tree crickets. I've found three different species so far in the past few days. I could make the photo darker to bring out the details but it really was as pale or paler as it shows in this photo.

Moved from Tree Crickets. REALLY nice photo.

Snowy Tree Cricket
I've been experimenting with the way I take photos and have been pleased with some of the results. Lucky for me the camera can focus because my eyes certainly can't anymore.

Hi Ilona,
This is a Snowy Tree Cricket instar. Note the white spots on the abdomen and the black dashes on the antennae. Snowy's are overall pale, especially the limbs, so this photo needs no editing.

Glad to hear it'll be a good year for tree crickets!!!
