We got home late Saturday Night (10pm) from attending a baby shower in Greenville. Arianna found a cool bug on the back porch and we spent the next hour making a home, observing, sketching and researching the bugs. When we went out back to get some leaves for him to eat, we found another one. Ari named them Collard and Greens. Turns out that they are male Katydids. We have enjoyed listening to them each night. We were hoping that one would be female so we could possibly have baby katydids in the spring but we haven’t caught a female yet.
As soon as we got them in a jar, Arianna said, “I am going to run and get my colored pencils so I can draw the bugs.” She drew it with it licking one of his feet. The original jar we put him in was a peanut butter container and every step he took he would lick his feet which made us laugh.
