This is a katydid nymph “dancing” with a Janice Brown daylily. I was following this fellow for awhile and he took this wonderful pose and I took his picture!

I don’t know much about katydids, and some sources say they eat daylilies, but I haven’t found that to be the case with ours.

    Your katydid struck quite a pose for you! I like the metallic coloring on its back and the way it ties with the green in the background. A fine catch!

  • Thank you so much for your lovely comments and the fave, Celeste! I was really lucky to catch him in this pose – usually I just miss the perfect moment!
