Default Katydid What?

She certainly did - made another nymph.

I love the colors on these little critters.

Great shot, Clint! Love these babies, they are so cute (cute face) and colorful! And they look amazing when they are grown up, like a large green leaf with legs.

banksy - yes I think they eat plants, as well as other bugs.

They eat flowers - here's an adult eating on my crinum lily.

They aren't quite as "cute" when they grow up.

Amazing close ups. Some day will need to get a macro lens.

I agree - the older you get the more cuteness wears off.
