Katy­did Nymph

Getaway (South Africa) - - Photography -

I found this lit­tle katy­did nymph hid­ing in­side a hibiscus flower in my gar­den. I had to kneel down and get very close, about five to 10 cen­time­tres away, as the nymph is only about one cen­time­tre big. They are rel­a­tives of the cricket and have feel­ers two or three times longer than their bodies. The nymphs look like the adults but with­out wings.
