Still Life With Katydid

Heading out tomorrow at the crack of godawful, to visit my parents, do a gallery opening, all that good stuff. I am already tired, so this may be the Death March of the Wombat. We’ll see.

I shall leave you with a katydid.

This is called a “Broad-Tipped Conehead Katydid.”

Seriously, check out that face.

You can’t tell me he isn’t plotting something.

Also, I got a barred owl in the backyard last night, and that is just cool beyond all reason. And a life bird. At the moment, I am having enormous fun just finding new species in my yard, but perhaps the wilds of Upper Michigan will have some late migrants for me. Or some interesting ducks.

And then at least I get to be home for a little while, until it’s time to go sign copies of Digger. And then I’m not traveling again for anything less than Disneyworld or an act of God until May.

  1. He is clearly up to no good.

    Have you seen those, well, maybe nymphs of some kind of beetle that look like tiny lobsters? I’ve seen several when digging holes for plants. They always rear their claws which is touching and amusing.
