How is my bird real

where did my drink go

(via sunbittern)


A couple of days ago I was really happy to find a great green bush-cricket. Yesterday, at the same spot, I found this one hit by a car, still twitching. I arranged a little funeral for it, like I used to do when I was a child (more recently inspired by pet-burial). There were eggs spilling out, and I put them in a jar with some soil and leaves, in case they might hatch. If anyone has suggestions on how to keep them, let me know.
