Even though it's been rather toasty outdoors recently, it's still really nice to sit out on the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine and soak up the summer sounds. I love the noise the cicadas make and August is their month, where their chirruping builds to a crescendo. I have tried to capture the sound in the film footage below, but it really doesn't do it justice.
Bob and Tom love us being out there with them and love to lie up against the side of the balcony where it's cooler, or sniff around for bugs.
A small film.

Tom's favourite spot - not such a gentlemanly pose!
