Handsome field crickets.

That’s not a name for them, just me admiring them. Gryllus is a genus of field crickets. Once, they were all put in the same species, but then people started taking a closer look and realized, oh, these guys are different from those guys. (And actually, I suspect these guys have, since then, been recategorized as fool, point-head, and range grasshoppers, Tropidolophus, Acrolophitus and Hadrotettix. Still handsome, though.)

I found the image in the New York Public Library Digital Collections.
