Ever get that feeling that you are not alone?
Most weekends, Eric and I enjoy a glass of wine on our patio. I guess, being in Texas, we shouldn't be surprised to find that we often share it with the local wildlife.
In the past, we've been serenaded by frogs, entertained by skunks, raided by raccoons.
I was only mildly surprised then when I turned to say something to Eric and noticed a very large, very green "thing" on the window frame. With apologies to my husband, this photo was too good not to share!!
I did a little research and I think I can identify the bug as an Oblong-Winged Katydid -- Amblycorpha oblongifolia
Here's another photo of it.
