Leafy

One night we were playing outside after dinner when the girls told us that they found a bug that looked like a leaf with six legs and antennas. They directed us to the middle of the cul de sac where we saw this guy...


We decided to move Leafy (as the girls cleverly named him) to our tree using this sunflower stalk.

Here he is on our tree.

We ended up transferring Leafy again to our old butterfly habitat (a net cage) where he spent the next few days and we observed him and then eventually set him free. We think he was a katydid.
