My Katydid

When I was young, we used to listen for the sounds of the katydid at night. The insect made a noise that sounded exactly like it's name, as well as noise that sounded like "katy didn't."

The insect below is fork-tailed bush katydid (according to my National Audubon book, anyway). I am not an entomologist, but that's my best guess based on the book photos.

These are my photos of my katydid, another creature living in my flower garden.

Katy didn't
Those are long antennae, aren't they? Almost four times as long as the bug's body. They'd give me a headache!
