Cricket Confusion

3 p.m. A brown cricket flaps its wings which are black, creating a confusion effect that deters predators.

August 7th. 6 p.m. Another startled cricket flaps away, but this time its inner wings are bright orange. This also creates the same confusion effect. I have also seen crickets with green wing flaps.
