Lost Arts studio

A lot of the fiber arts I enjoy are things like tatting, netmaking, chair caning, and even weaving, where people will come up to me when I demonstrate and solemnly tell me, "That's a lost art."

Mysterious Ticking Noise

When we were all outdoors around the fire in the dark, I kept hearing a mysterious ticking noise coming from the trees.

I love the internet - I'm pretty sure it was the greater angle-winged katydid, Microcentrum rhombifolium.

The website Singing Insects of North America has a .wav file here. Tick tick tick to you, too, Mr. Angle-wing!

Isn't the internet a good thing? And isn't nature even better?

If it was coming from the trees, I might have said it was wood ticks.
