From its behavior I had wondered if this Katydid was munching on some small bugs but don’t see any when I magnify the image.
Perhaps it was wondering how to best attack this star hibiscus for lunch.
He didn’t seem concerned about my presence as I tried some different angles.
This fellow was much shorter and with compact antennae compared to the Long-horned Katydid I found in June.
Another outstanding Hibiscus, with delicate pinks leading into a burst of magenta.
The side view hides the boldness of the middle.
Looking more like an accident than a plan, I had to look closer when I spotted a lone hibiscus rising above the crowd in this border of Impatiens and Salvia.
The size and color combo were amazing.
I hoped in vain that a butterfly, or any insect, would come along to have its picture taken with this gorgeous specimen.
