I had just stepped out on the deck to take in the bird feeders for the night and noticed there were still a lot of crickets out there. Took my H2 to record their singing, but the sound of traffic was very intrusive. You may have to turn up your volume. I didn't want to amplify the sound any more to increase the noise. Image was "enhanced" with Nik SilverEfex Pro. No noise reduction, in fact the filtration I used produces more!
