English cricket

I'm not aware that I have ever seen a cricket before last week.  I found this beauty in Somerset.  It is a Dark Bush Cricket, Pholidoptera griseoaptera.

Then three days later this one landed on me in Wiltshire.  I think it is an Oak Bush Cricket, Meconema thalassinum.  I managed only one photo on the iPhone in pouring rain under my umbrella.
