Now that I’ve gotten used to searching for bugs, I do it everywhere. That means that when I’m walking around the lake, I’m not looking in front of myself or looking at my feet: I’m looking in the foliage for weird bugs.
During a break between watching the Northern Shoveler Boys at Sunset Bay, I noticed this male katydid perched on a colocasia leaf.
He tried to escape by crawling under the leaf.
Then he seemed to remember that he had wings and flew away.
