Sometimes a cricket will decide to live in your garden.
I was so surprised to see it, because I had never seen one before.
At first I thought it was a grasshopper, but after doing some research learned that crickets have long antennae, while grasshoppers have short antennae.
This one decided that the Raggedy Ann zinnia flower was a good place to hang out for a day.
It must have been a delicious treat for a bird.
