it's like insectopia outside...

I have no way to express the amazement going on right now. It must be mating season for the insects because there is a orchestra in my yard! Crickets thousands of them, I don't particularly care for them but I can appreciate their song. Saturdays are wonderful especially the slow paced ones...

Love your take on the sketch. My favorite part is the cross-hatches at the top! But the main image panel is pretty cool too! :)
