Later, among the Potted Insects
So I was taking the visiting drop kick dog out to the back forty for his constitutional, looking around in a bleary-eyed way and noticed this incredibly cool plume moth posturing on a firestick branch growing in a mixed succulent pot. Wow, how's that for an early morning eye-opener?
As I was crouched down to photograph the moth, I noticed an even better catch: a young katydid of a different species posing photogenically on a cactus in the same pot. This could be microcentrum rhombifolium, broad-winged katydid. It is definitely not the typical (for my garden) scudderia furcata.
Two in one pot, now where did the dog get to?
