Attack Of The Bush Katydid!

I spent some time outside tonight – quite happy that decent bug weather is FINALLY here! A cicada started chirping up a storm and I could hear a katydid start to click in the distance. I started to pack up my stuff to go in since it was getting dark. Turned around and what’s right in front of me??

Well – HELLO THERE little bush katydid!  🙂  I’m not sure I would have been able to identify it if I hadn’t run across an adult bush katydid a couple years ago. This little sucker was FAST! I stayed outside and played with it until it flew off.

This video cracked me up!
