Beast on the Basil

I'm not sure what this beastie is supposed to be mimicking but it's doing a great job of it. 


  1. Great looking beast. I would grow basil just to attract them. Love your pictures. They instigate memories of my childhood in the Arkansas Ozarks.

  2. Our insect expert says this is a katydid nymph. I think that is so cool! They seem to be so invisible until all of a sudden the mountain side goes to rocking at night. Now we know it is because they hide really well.
