How big was that grasshopper, Idaho Spud, that you mistook it for a bird?

Aww! Thanks, booklover. That's a keeper.

I didn't remember what it was until I got on Google Image and Katydid popped into my head.  That's what it is.

How wonderful Idaho - a rainbow before the rain.
I like that cool picture you posted here. Looks like an insect that I need to look up the name of.

I've tried several more times to spot a hummingbird at the trumpet vine, but no luck.  However, I did see a rainbow this morning as the thunderstorm started.  By the time I retrieved my camera from the basement, the rainbow was gone, but I did capture this bird.  It's one I haven't seen in probably 30 years.
