Wildlife: Leaf Bug (Gatlinburg, TN)

This beautiful little leaf bug crawled all the way up to me, as I enjoyed my evening coffee last fall on a cabin deck in Gatlinburg, TN. Among all the breathtaking scenery, he was so tiny (some might say insignificant) but he seemed so proud of his dashing lime green outfit. Who could have passed up taking a picture of that pose?

I was in my kitchen eating lunch when I noticed this guy right outside my window. I love leaf bugs! He was so good and still while I snapped his picture!

I think it is a "Katydid" that makes noises at dark. (09/11/2009)

As much as I love to study insects, recycle, and observe their behavior, had that lovely chewer been in my garden


I'd have to catch him and take him to the fields, because he is related to the grasshopper which eats everything that grows, and fast, as well as multiplies like flies! Nice photo, bad bug! lol (09/14/2009)
