This little guy was so scared of us looking at him that he tried to hop across the road. My friend picked him up, set him on his hand, took him across the road, and let him hop into a little stream. Taken at Felicita Park in Escondido, California.
We took some home before, from a park in San Antonio. Even the smallest crickets we could buy were too big for the little guys to eat. I felt so bad that we ended up taking them back to the park in a few days.
I am not sure if this little bugger is the same type we have in clusters in our fields, but they are so little and amazing to play with. I think we used to catch them in socks and carry big bunches of them home when I was a child.
