Big Green Insect

I encountered this fella lurking just outside my apartment door this morning as I left on a morning shopping venture.

The thing was perched on the door jamb of my apartment door when I returned.

    Looks like a katydid to me. Pretty impressive fake leaf wing covers, aren’t they.

  2. Impressive indeed. Thanks for the ID Dan. I had no idea.

    Margarita says it’s called an “Esperanza”. Esperanza is “hope” in Spanish… It’s a type of cricket…

    Actually, I thought it was a type of Cicada before Margarita told me what it was called here…

  6. After Dan identified it as a Katydid I Yahooed for an image and found bunches of images.

    Hey good picture, It´s a good idea to show the nature and the art of the mexican hands like the box lemon tree.
