This strange creature was hanging out on my neighbor Al’s blueberry plant a couple of weeks ago.
UPDATED- I thought it looked like another katydid nymph. Click on the link and take a look. Other than the obvious color differences, the hind legs are clearly not the same. This one is likely still a nymph (immature- not an adult), but it is probably destined to be a true bug of some sort.
Is it leaning over the edge just to take in a nice view?
I don’t think so. Take a look at its hind legs. See the white stuff wrapped around them? It looks like this insect has gotten itself caught in a spider web.
