If you live in the south you probably know what these are. In the summer time I get about 5 billion of these in my backyard, all rubbing their legs and making ungodly noises. They are called True Katydid, which look like grasshoppers if you stuck a leaf on its back. They are suppose to reside in trees but apparently about 50 of them prefer my porch instead. This is one such critter.

Truly wonderful, and absolutely fascinating! I love this shot!! I gave it an 8, and feel quite stupid for not giving it a 10.

Might skip the next dance, another species calls. I thought this top ten as well, but marvelously anthropomorphic showgirl.
