Another nocturnal symphony

Late July in the Carolinas (and the South, in general, as well as the Mid-Atlantic states) bring the summer chorus of insects: field crickets, cicadas, and katydids.

I'm hardly an expert, just an appreciator, of their sounds. A friend, back home in Iowa in summer for unanticipated reasons, some years ago, said she missed the night sounds. 

I hadn't thought before about how the chorus was specific. 

But now I'm thinking about a garden blogger friend in Indiana mentioning on her Facebook feed about how loud the night sounds were recently, so maybe there's a rural aspect, or it's tree frogs, too.

Regardless, I'm glad to listen to the chorus tonight.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
