Katydid Nymph

As spring advances and temperatures rise, Orthopterans (grasshoppers, crickets, and katydids) of all kinds are emerging. Newborn nymphs have hatched from their eggs, and they are everywhere.

The next time you're in a field or meadow, take a closer look at the little critters hopping through the grass and flowers.  You'll probably see a katydid, grasshopper, or cricket nymph.

 

 

 

And, if that nymph is lucky, eluding predators, starvation, and the elements, it might just become an adult.
