Two Katydids

These are two tiny katydid nymphs, probably both Scudderia furcata, forktailed bush katydid. But the first one looked a little odd, blunter in body and slightly different color so maybe it could be another species. Anyway, the slightly odd one is seen here on a seedling abutilon palmerii, a descendant and replacement for the wonderful old Indian mallow I had that died last year. The not odd, definitely S. furcata one is traipsing across a yarrow flower.

I bookmarked your site a long time ago and then lost track of it amidst the cares of life and far too many bookmarked sites in my browser. Found it again today and intend to read everything, as I love everything to do with nature. Your posts are fascinating. Please keep them coming.
