Can you find the Katydid in our lawn? Katydids blend into the grass, but they are everywhere! Our cat and sometimes the dogs will be running around the yard chasing things, looking like they are crazy. It was not until recently that I had to go investigate what it was, because they were making me laugh so hard.
Bugs that eat tree-limbs?
I see tree limbs on the ground and often will hear a limb fall down in the jungle. It turns out that there are insects that chew around the limb until it falls. I am not sure what they are called, but when I tried looking it up on Google, I found a picture of a bug that is found in Oklahoma, Twig Girdler, that does the same thing. The picture on the left is a limb from the farm. The picture on the right is the picture of the bug in Oklahoma. I think it is the same thing, just probably called something else here.
Caterpillars that would be great for fly-fishing
I see many fuzzy caterpillars here, but this was the first time that I thought about the time that I took classes to learn how to tie flies for fishing. And no, I do not fly fish, I just wanted to see if I could make the flies. :)
Cicadas are here!
Wow are they loud! Sometimes, I have to close my front door to drown out the noise. It seems to be on and off noise throughout the day, but more consistent at night. The below picture is not mine, it is off of a panama travel site.
Rainbows and Dogs - Adding some cuteness here too
My dog keeps watching the horse next door eat the leaves off of the trees. I am convinced that he is now trying to eat the leaves to grow bigger like the horse. The dog is obsessed with the horse, he is both scared of it, but fascinated.
The rainbows in the afternoon here are a common sight this time of year and it makes the afternoon scenery fun.
There are tons of other cool bugs here, like the neon blue and green caterpillar, but they will have to wait until I get more pictures. :)
