Black Katydid
When I first saw one of these a few days after I arrived in the USA.. I was a tad nervous ! I know what they are now.. and how much noise the make !!. This one had just mated.

Great photo, but it looks like a Leaf-Footed Bug, possibly Acanthocephala terminalis. I believe all of this family exudes a stink when disturbed and some are major pests of crops.

Honestly I dont know...

Beloved One grew up calling them katies... but they arent like the black katy's

I have the shield/stink bugs here.. and they are different again.

This one put up with alot from me and didnt behave badly. Lots of them sap my poor prickly pear cacti .. and they are at different stages.

I am confused... but there's nothing new about THAT ....ROFL !!!!!!
