Katydid by annied

Katydid

I'm going with alphabetical order for January - using all the photos I've taken in January for inspiration.
How luck was I that in January a Katydid visited my basil plant?

The Common Garden Katydid is a cousin to the grasshopper and cricket, about 4 to 6 cm in length with extremely long, thin antennae, and powerful back legs for jumping.

There are about 1000 species in Australia and they are part of the orthopteran group of insects, which means 'straight wings'. Like crickets, male Katydids play songs to attract females by rubbing their wings together. The call is supposed to sound like 'Katy-did'. Some Katydid songs, however, are at too high a frequency for human ears to hear.
What a great find and shot with lovely details. I have never seen one before, fav!

@pusspup I love them! They can happily eat to their hearts content hahaha - don't think they're as voracious as caterpillars

love this shot. we have these, they like the young foliage of citrus trees and rosebuds!

for get-pushed this week I just saw this idea from Lauri http://365project.org/laurikukkonen/365/2019-03-09

ie. light painting using a long exposure in the dark with either your phone or a torch to draw with, or using a static image on a screen moving or zooming your camera. hope you have fun with it lol
