If I see a bug at home my first instinct is to kill. I'm sorry I can't help it.

However, something came over me yesterday and I made it my personal mission to save a lonely cricket.

(Insert Mission Impossible music here.)

There was a huge cricket stuck on one of those sticky bug cards in the studio. I'm not sure how I noticed it was alive, but I saw it move at some point. I immediately felt bad for the poor thing. I could've killed it to give it a swift death without suffering. Instead I took pity on the cricket.

I scooped up the sticky card with the cricket and brought it outside.

Trying to film and release the cricket from it's imprisonment was quite a challenge.

How did it go?
