It's not every day you get to hold cool critters...especially ones that you don't see all the time. We see plenty of grasshoppers, but this was the first katydid I'd seen all year.
Found it on my morning run a week back, and we watched it for a day in a jar on the counter.
Then we decided we wouldn't keep him for our collection, even though he was super cool.
We (they) held him, watched him fly around the yard, and then let him go.
