08.11.2020 Katydid say I could make this portrait

Maybe a different or possibly the same Fork-tailed Bush Katydid-Scudderia furcata I previously posted.

Just hanging out on one of our milkweed leaves waiting for dark and the concert to begin.

Handheld with the 40D plus twin flash.

    Last evening’s symphonic concert included not only katydids, but two kinds of crickets and a very prolonged (20-30 min.) guest appearance of the coyotes from the ridge. It was pretty amazing!

  6. I’m really not a lover of bugs but this has to be one of the most incredible nature frames I’ve seen of late. Your use of lighting is utterly incredible and what a perfect exposure too. Award winning stuff here, Steve! Bravooooooo! πŸ™

    • Insects in the yard are pretty much the extent of my handheld and flash photography. In the field I’d rather pursuit with my tripod which means I miss a lot of shots but get better detail and fewer speculars.At 1/250 sec my shaky hands seem steady. πŸ™‚

    Aw, what a lovely face!
    Incidentally I discovered a chrysalis on the dogbane yesterday and got all excited. Remember me mentioning there were several Monarch caterpillars on my milkweed, and then there were none? But after closer inspection of the chrysalis I noted a small hole in the side and it was quite empty. I suspect an ichneumon wasp. Cool in their way, but I sure would have liked getting to watch a butterfly emerge from it’s chrysalis.
