Katy Did It

Katydid

Look! A leafy bug! Leafy bugs always amaze me. The Katydid is one of my favorites because of the sound they make (click to hear.) I like to sit out on my porch with an egg shaker in my hand and talk to them - and yes, they do talk back. LOL.



It was slightly challenging to shoot with one hand and hold this guy with the other but I did my best. Katydids don't sit still like praying mantis do.

I took all these with my Canon SD1000 Digital Elph and it's times like these that I long for a full sized SLR with a real macro lens.
