Baby carni bird

You can really tell it’s summer in Australia when the dulcet tones of Richie Benaud booms out of the tele whilst the grasshoppers outside make a racket by rubbing their legs together in the balmy heat of the midday sun. How the hell the damn things don’t spontaneously combust I’ll never know. [illustrations by Peter Ferguson]
