Caption: Male field cricket (Gryllus sp.) chirping. The male field cricket calls to attract a mate, and his song reveals details about his age and health. The male produces his call by stridulation, the rapid rubbing of a hard forewing against a serrated part of the opposite forewing. Males typically call in summer, mate and then die in winter, with the eggs hatching the following spring. Filmed in the USA.
