Critter On a Borrow Bed

Friday, December 21, 2012

Is this a regular grasshopper? I am not sure anymore as I saw too many strange looking ones around my yard, during the summer. I am not fond of insects, but they made an interesting subject to photograph.

A Borrow Bed
This hopper loved to stay on the inside petals of flowers, and their favorite ones are lilies and zinnias. I usually found them sleeping by the heart of the flowers in the morning.

  6. I agree with TexWisGirl - I think it's a karydid too.
