  •  Excellent diary, as usual. (8+ / 0-)

    Here's my sad katydid story.  A few years ago I was on my screened-in back porch (Macon, GA).  A green katydid was trapped inside.  Grabbing it by the wings, I carried it to the door and tossed it into the air.  It took flight, aiming for the redbud tree a short distance away.

    Suddenly a bird appeared from nowhere, and captured the katydid.  Happy ending for the bird, but not the katydid.
