You Better Not Be Eating That!

Actually go ahead, it's just a Coleus... Eat the flowers first, so I don't have to pinch them off!

Katydid - not sure what kind. It looks like Godzilla on this little Coleus.


  1. Lovely insect, and probably eating more bugs than leaves.

  2. I believe that's a Fork-tailed Bush Katydid, female - you can see the shape of her lady bits through her wings. I photographed a nymph in my own garden last month. The eat plants, but I'll take them vs. damn dirty slugs any day.

    1. Thanks John! The only "bugs" I get rid of are the slugs and snails. The goldfish sometimes get a caterpillar as a treat.
