I thought it was a grasshopper nymph but some on Flickr noted it could be a bush katydid nymph. Please ejimikate me!

...that ol' link to a photo of yer fella's kissin' cousin and consider yourself edjimakated, Homer! Quick tip to tell baby hoppers and katydids apart: Grasshoppers are also known as 'short-horned orthoptera' for the obvious reason--they never have the long, long antennae that the 'long-horned' katydids (and crickets) do.

(Man! After all that deliberate misspelling, I'm suddenly hungry for some Po' Folks food!)


thanks Heimchen very very much. I appreciate the suggestion to compare! After clicking and comparing, I consider myself ejimikated! :)
