More Woodpile Excitement

 These Katydids are called Mormon Crickets in some places.  I guess they can come in large swarms some years and destroy crops.  I still like the name Katydid better, and I'm glad I live in a place where they don't seem to get "out of control."  This one jumped out of our woodpile while we were stacking, and we had fun playing with it for a while.  The air temperature was around 45 degrees, so that might explain why it was content to sit on my son's hand for a while so i could take pictures.  The photo session did warm it up though.  A few minutes later it was hoping around the driveway, probably trying to find its former hiding place.
