"Oh, yes, Katy-Did!"
I've been wanting to say that ever since the katydids descended upon Long Hollow a few weeks ago!
Their season seems to have passed... or at least they're not hanging out on our porch like they were when I snapped these photos last week.
Most of them were leaf green, but this golden one liked me and followed me around, begging me to take his portrait.
He was a great model, even for close-ups!
I love the design of his wings
(despite being a little cockroach-ish)
...and aren't his eyes amazing?
They really are that neon green.
You wouldn't catch me holding one, but I didn't mind them chilling on my porch.
I hope they come back next summer!
