We’ve had a few new visitors to the yard this month
This guy, with the fantastic antennae is a Gladiator Katydid. And he’s a biggie! He is easily the length of my middle finger, if not a little longer. He was hanging out on the Hollyhock leaves and I almost missed him – he blended in so well.
While I was photographing this fantastic yard monster, I caught some movement below out of the corner of my eye…
This little Red-Legged Grasshopper hopped over to the Liatris at my feet, as if to say… I want my picture taken too.
And he posed so nicely! He was only about half the size of Mr. Katydid… but he’s just as impressive.
