Katydid

20160823_072144I love listening to katydids during warm summer evenings.  In my suburban neighborhood, they are one of the few night-singing insects that seems to thrive.  I took this phone-camera photo one morning as I was headed out to work.  This is the first year I had tried to raise roses, so I paused for a moment to admire my handwork and noticed this fellow hanging out on a flower.
