Bachelor Buttons and a Katydid
While watering some flowers I’d planted on our porch from ‘flower bombs’ my oldest son had given me, I noticed a katydid on top of a cabinet. I went into the house to grab my camera and 100mm macro lens and hoped the katydid would still be there. It seemed a bit wary of and yet fascinated by me and the camera. I could even see its abdomen pulse up and down as I watched it through the lens. A friend of mine related a time when a katydid jumped on her nose and wouldn’t let go. I said I would have been screaming and jumping up and down to get it off, and she said that’s exactly what she did. I’m glad this katydid didn’t do that.
A warm breeze blew through intermittently, so I set my camera on action mode to capture the blue Bachelor Button, and then on manual for the others when the wind was calm.
