Katydid (Leaf Bug) Photos

Category Wildlife
Katydids or leaf bugs actually resemble walking leaves, in the same way as walking stick bugs look like twigs. These are not related to Phylliidae or walking leaf insects. This page contains Katydid (leaf bug) photos.

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?

This katydid appeared to be lost as it sat on our picture window looking I don't know where, but it seemed to be looking in as if to be asking directions to the garden. Since we have already cleaned off our garden he seemed quite confused as to where he was supposed to go. He allowed me to get quite close and take several pictures before he left us for more fruitful lands.

Editor's Note: This insect has been identified as a katydid instead of a praying mantis so we have corrected the entry.

I found this Katydid among my geraniums the other day. His color blended in perfectly with the geranium leaves. I have not seen many of these in the past and really enjoyed viewing and photographing the insect. The insect looked so much like the plant leaves, note his folded up wings really do look leaf like. He moved slowly up the stem. I photographed him and left him to his pleasures as he explored the plant.

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)

I always consider the day blessed when I see one of these. A creature this cute can share my produce any day.
