Large Bark Katydid

75mm | January 19, 2011

Armonia Nature Preserve, Limon Province, Costa Rica


This large katydid was trying to remain inconspicuous on the side a tree. With a body three inches long and antennae over twice that, it was difficult to miss. I considered making this a crypsis challenge, but it seemed too easy.

In the second photo, it’s in the lower right corner.

  1. The 2nd photo would’ve been a good challenge – it took me a while to find it (didn’t read ahead), and even then I already knew what I was looking for.
