French Predators

Here in the south of France the multiple insects have multiple predators. The evenings are alive with the whir, hum and buzz of cicaadas and crickets but the air is also full of bats, the walls and floors alive with scuttering lizards, preying mantis and wasp spiders stalk the flower beds and the garden hides multiple green frogs and huge toads.

The noises of the night-time crickets and cicadas are so incredibly loud, and also quite distinct and recognisable, whether they are the same insects making different noises or all different species I can't say.
