Local Insect: Katydid Nymph

Local Insect: Katydid Nymph

Here's a tiny katydid nymph on the tip of a lemon balm leaf in the back yard. It's either a Fork-tailed bush katydid (Scudderia furcata) or an Angular-winged katydid (Microcentrum retinerve), I can't quite tell. There are lots of them crawling around in my lemon balm. Cute little critters. Look at those enormously long antennae!

Katydids have eardrums in their forelegs. Still think that snails having noses on their chin is odd?
