Slightly Musical Conehead

   Ha! Made you look! With a name like that, how can you not click on my post and look to see what that's all about. But seriously, that is it's real name, here's proof. I couldn't make up a name like Slightly Musical Conehead, I'm not clever enough. After listening to its song, I have to say I'm a bit underwhelmed, I guess I expected more from something deemed "slightly musical". You can have a listen for yourself here. Jeff found this while mowing a few days ago and relocated it to a safe place.


  1. What a graceful form! Love it!

  2. That sound reminds me of some warm nights in Southern Europe, when I was a young girl.


  3. Just havin' a little fun;) I like to tell my 10 year old niece about what I wore or did when I was a little girl. Gets her all in a twist.

  4. New to me! (The bug, not Jeff's outlandish tales.)

    Thanks for sharing.

  5. That's a great name...
    props for looking it up! I never bothered.
    It sounds like a cricket...
    I checked his family tree... related to the katydids... his tail is different, though.
    Jeff moved it? Ida moved it into the bait bucket.
