if you get traps, you will probably have to empty them ever morning, but if you have a pond, they make for great fish and frog food.

Cool! I'd love to feed them to my fish and frogs!

Empty the traps early before they warm up, that way the beetles are too slow to fly away.

Snapped by Carol yesterday...
The color was a very bright green.
Couldn't have been more than an inch-long body

Oh, hell no. Just like a grasshopper is a grasshopper and a cricket is a cricket in my world...:lol: It's really tough to say without seeing a side shot (at least for me). There are over 200 species of the family Tettigoniidae in North America. The more that I looked, the more confused I became.

Beautiful! Some of the orb-weavers are really striking.

Mike spotted this walking stick on my office porch this morning. I tried to get a photo of me holding it, but the darn thing was too fast--up my arm, on my head, down my back... :lol: I had to settle for a photo of it on a towel on the floor, where it would finally stay still:
