Spotted Camel Cricket  (Ceuthophilus maculatus),  Burnsville, NC, September 6, 2019  This is a dead specimen that I found on the floor of our porch. I’ve never seen one of these crickets in the wild before, so I photographed it using my 2X macro setup. Insects are so amazing! They literally look like aliens.
