Qilai Shen

Shandong Province, CHINA

Farmers crowd near a table of cricket collectors to offer their recent catches at a night cricket market dubbed the "lit market" near Yanzhou. Every August tens of thousands of cricket enthusiasts from major cities flock to rural Shandong, a place famed for its strong and ferocious crickets, to look for champions. The crickets, some fetching hundreds even thousands of dollars, are then fought in late September, drawing what insiders estimate to be some 25 to 35 million dollars a year.
