It's katydid season now and one has been hanging around my deck for a few days. There's a nor'easter coming tomorrow so I went to move some of the stuff on my deck to a more sheltered location and I discovered my gazing ball was inhabited.


The katydid is on the upper right portion of the ball.





The katydid gritted its teeth and hung on as I moved the gazing ball so I hope it will weather the storm OK in the new location or hop/fly into some protected nook or cranny. I'm guessing the gazing ball is nice and warm in the sun.


I'm not sure of the ID, maybe a conehead or slender meadow kaydid per the

Grasshoppers and Crickets of Massachusetts site.
