Katydids at night, North Carolina, USA – by Will Coley

“Katydids are the sound of summer for me. When I was growing up in North Carolina, these insects were the white noise machine that lulled me to sleep. Apparently they’re all broadcasting pickup lines and cat calls. But to my ears, it’s a peaceful drone. These katydids were recorded after a rainstorm in Montreat up in the Appalachian Mountains. You can also hear a train in the distance.”
