    Is that a katydid? It couldn’t have chosen a more colourful background – a beautifully composed photograph.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Anne. The contrast was quite striking. This young one (they mature to about twice this size) has been hanging around the garden lately. Usually they are tree and shrub dwellers.

    What a lovely vistor and a great capture!

  4. Irene says:

    Oh, my goodness! What a magnificent capture. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  5. Robin says:

    Oh, this is perfect! โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

  6. Joanna says:

    Lovely picture! I haven’t seen katydids in a long time…they must not live this far north. What variety of Calendula is that? I like the pinkish tint! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I have never seen one! Wonderful color combination.

  8. Alice says:

    Nice to be so comfortable in your skin, that you don’t need to camouflage yourself, either that or the Katydid is ‘somewhat’ colorblind.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I know, I thought that myself. Such easy-pickings for a hungry bird. But maybe it makes her easier for a mate to spot, worth the risk? Who knows. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. Iโ€™ve never seen a katydid-thanks!

  10. Jim R says:

    What did Katy do?

  11. Kris P says:

    I wasn’t sure if it was an insect or a mutant bloom. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a katydid.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      They are hard to see as they are experts at camouflage. Many a time I have been staring right at one on a leaf and don’t see it until it moves. This one clearly didn’t get that memo. ๐Ÿ˜‰
