quite cricket, actually

The first time I heard it, I wasn't really paying attention.

Then I saw it, and still, didn't really recognize what I was seeing.
But the third time, one of the commentators said something, and I suddenly realized what was going on.

The "bug squad" at the Olympics.
Several times now, a woman with a large net has gone out on the beach volleyball sand court to rescue a cricket and carry it to safety.

Coming from a fencing salle where we regularly stop fencing bouts to rescue ladybugs or spiders, I think that's just fabulous!!

Greetings, Hilinda -

I agree. I think I'm always surprised when human beings may way naturally (that is without a press conference)for something other, realizing that dominion was never really the point.
