Last week Jeremy caught this katydid. I have to admit, it was pretty funny watching him run, jump, and flit around the yard trying to get the darn thing. We kept it over night in our bug box so he could show the kids the next morning.
All of the kids were completely fascinated. I don't think any of them have seen one of these before. Samantha was the first to touch and hold it (of course).
This made Athena feel brave enough to hold it too. :)
Nathan wanted nothing to do with it, so this is the only picture I could get of him and I still didn't get Nathan and the bug in the same frame.
That bug box has been the best investment I've made all summer. The kids have had endless fun with it and so has Jeremy.
