Cricket Dance

A few days ago I noticed a number of crickets in my basement. They are a silent variety as I haven’t heard any chirping. Once I get them identified, I’ll figure out if they are harmful or if I just ignore them. For now they are a good subject for a a time-lapsed video. I set up a camera and flash to take an image every 15 seconds overnight. The following is a short time-lapsed video.

If you don’t see the video, you can see it here.
