I saw this on our gate, ran inside and got the camera. He sat there very calm, no matter how close I got to him. Then that bent leg reached out and snared a bug for a tasty treat. He munched away while I shot away : )

I have no idea what kind of bug this is. I looked at a lot of green bug images and could not find one like this one.

    Well seen and presented, Ann. On this monitor, it looks like a plain old grasshopper.

    My thought was katydid too, but I don't see the ridges on the back legs like katydids.... so Don could be right

    I have looked through a lot of grasshopper images and Katydid images and I still do not know which one it could be! They look very similar to each other.
