Warm up singing
Synchronous songs
   
 


A male Fast-calling tree cricket clings to the underside of a leaf as he raises his wings to sing.  (This photo is turned for easier viewing.)

 

The wings begin to slide rapidly over one another to produce a song - continuous trillling.


 

As the female feeds, the male arches his abodomen upward and 'grasps' the female with his claspers.


This shows the contortions the female undergoes to receive the spermatophore.


The pair hang onto the underside of a leaf while mating.
