Katydids are related to Crickets and Grasshoppers, but are individuals in their own right.  Their amazingly long and mobile antennae make them a little difficult to photograph, so I was very pleased with these photos of some I found today.  The first one was on a pink rose, so it has taken on that colour, but the second one, on a pale pink Dahlia had remained green.

Taken with the Canon EOS 550D and EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens and using a tripod as usual.



  1. These shots are sensational Sue! I think you have solved my dilemma as to which digital camera this family will buy.
