Oh thanks Idaho Spud! Katydids are so cool!
Comment by Idaho Spud on September 10, 2012 at 12:09pm

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.

Hey Joan! Yes Cedar Waxwings are in my area and I saw them during winter migration. They are the most beautiful birds! (One of the most)

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 9, 2012 at 11:18pm

Steph, I had no idea Cedar Waxwings are so lovely. Are they in your area? 

Tony, your glass frog and Andean Cock-of-the Rock are most intriguing and exotic. What a wonderful diversity of living forms.

Weather forecast change. Seems an expected cold snap is diverted. Whew! It is 9 PM and 64 degrees. More ripe tomatoes ahead!

Comment by Steph S. on September 9, 2012 at 8:53pm
Wow! A glass frog! I love how you can see the organs Tony! I'll have to research that frog.
Melinda that is music to my ears. : )
Nature is diverse and wonderful!
Comment by Tony Carroll on September 9, 2012 at 8:47pm

Yes Melinda, it is just so amazing how evolution works. It is mind boggling. I know this isn't a bird, but here is something else I have that blows me away. A glass frog.
