Katydid vs. Grasshopper
I've said it before, I'll say it again, "I take my hat off to the entomologists for being able to identify all those bugs." Even with the best of reference books and wonders of internet, I often find it difficult to venture forth names. The attached image is an example. I was ready to call the varmit a grasshopper, but then I hesitated. "I wonder if it's a katydid?" Sorting through a couple of books and endless images on the internet, I'm still not sure. My inclination is to go for katydid. What about you?
