Ohio Katydid and the Kids Via My Son Mark

A fun series to receive on the phone from my son Mark.

Looks like a depth of field exercise, too.

This is a “leaf bug” or katydid.  A relative of the grasshopper and also called a bush-cricket in some parts of the world.   Looks like such an interesting creature and is the perfection of camouflage.

Thanks Mark for sharing your Katydid and Kids study.  love you. Mom

Can you see him/her? Probably snacking on the foliage.

  1. Oh my goodness these are wonderful ! Especially the last one. ! That photo needs to be published somewhere. It shows so many emotions!
    PLUS a katydid is an amazing magician as well.

  2. This is a great series of photos! I agree with Kathryn. The last photo is fabulous. The Lego guys with the katydid and Jack looking over them reminds me of a scene from an episode of The Twilight Zone. Great work, Mark!

  3. That was an excellent series of pictures – I enjoyed everyone one of them. Such creativity! I am impressed!

  4. Mark, I knew when I first saw you as a newborn at Ft. Knox that you were destined to take fabulous photos like your mom!! No, all I knew for sure was that she had creative talent whether it was cooking or anything that had to do with art. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen a katydid here in Indiana. Great photos of the humans, too, but the katydid shots are outstanding!!

  5. Wow, Mark got some fantastic pictures! He could guest-blog on the Lego one, too. 🙂 {http://legomyphoto.wordpress.com}
