tbeckett What sort of insect is this? It is in Utah. 2d
  •   krishaislip Insects in the family Tettigoniidae are commonly called katydids or bush crickets. There are more than 6,400 species. They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets and weta than to any type of grasshopper. The name is derived from the genus Tettigonia, first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1748. Part of the suborder Ensifera, it is the only family in the superfamily Tettigonioidea. Many tettigoniids exhibit mimicry and camouflage, commonly with shapes and colors similar to leaves. 2d
  •   tbeckett @krishaislip Thanks! My first though was cicada, but the are more compact. 2d
  •   krishaislip No problem. It was cache, as the 7 year old was playing with one yesterday. You will differently know the difference, if you take a look at a cicada, juxtaposed. Cicadas are thick and very complex/creepy looking. The wings of cicada are a key distinction as well. 2d
  •   flutterby47 Are you in Utah?!?!?!! 2d
  •   tbeckett @flutterby47 No, but my wife Deborah is in Park City for work. 2d

tbeckett I have a garden. Yes, I realize it's the wrong time of year. 1w
  •   juneallison I dream of having a mini indoor garden over the winter. The one season I'd actually have time to tend to it. 1w
  •   tbeckett I'm starting these chile seeds planning to overwinter them under cover and then indoors with some artificial lighting. Chiles are perennials, so they'll be like house plants. 1w
  •   tbeckett @juneallison Forgot to tag you on that. 1w
  •   juneallison @tbeckett nice! Good idea. Our house has a mini sunroom we don't use much. I might have to invest in some lights and make it a mini greenhouse. 1w
