I always carry a camera with me because I don't know when something will catch my interest. This bug was resting on the hinge side of the storm door. Look at how transparent the wings are in the shadow. What in the world is this bug? Google to the rescue. It's a Katydid, did you know that? On further investigation, I found this audio clip of the sound the Katydid's make.


  1. I didn't realize Katydid's were this far north and west. It's an interesting creature.

  2. Wow- that's quite amazing! You can see how well it would be camouflaged in the leaves...not so much on a garage hinge tho' :o)

  3. Why did I think a Katydid was a flower? Learn something new every day!
