Bug sounds


Found a really neat website thanks to "geekdad". Ever sit around on a nice fall evening and listen to all those crickets chirping? Ever wonder what kind of cricket it is? Or was it possible a tree frog? I have :) this website has some nice photos, and even better, recorded sounds of the bug in question. I learned that the cicada that I am so used to hearing since I was a kid is actually called a swamp cicada. I didn't even know there were different types of cicadas!

Very cool! I've only seen that happen once before myself. It's creepy and cool at the same time. Looking forward to pics :)
