Garden Buddy

The zinnia seeds I planted this spring have rewarded me with some colorful blooms. Each morning this week I have been making my way to the garden with my camera, hoping to catch the blooms at their best in the early morning light; and each day I have been greeted by a little insect which I have identified as a katydid nymph. He seems to know I am photographing him since even when I get a little too close and shake the stem of the flower he continues to hang on. When the blooms have faded and I no longer see my garden buddy each morning, I trust he will be out in the garden as a full-fledged katydid and I will be listening for him in the evening!
