Cold katydid.


While bringing houseplants inside in anticipation of a drop in temperatures too great for the tropicals (even if they've been bred far beyond their original hot and humid loving ancestors, and seemed to like the cool wet spell, they have their limits) I disturbed this katydid. As you can see, it's a different species than the conehead from last month. I made a token attempt at an id, but had no luck other than a probable Scudderia. Sorry, I didn't get a good photo of its private parts...


Nom...nom...nom...

Can't imagine that geraniums are tasty, even to such a vegetarian, but the contrasting colors sure made a pretty picture.
