What Did We Do This Week? - Our Life in Costa Rica Yr #2

The week in review

A pretty normal week for us. Starting with a hair appt on Monday and will end with a trip to the feria this afternoon for weekly shopping and on Saturday, a meet up with some new friends we met at Dîner en Blanc.


A rather large Katydid appeared on our patio. Katydids are related to crickets and grasshoppers, with large back legs for jumping. They have wings, however, and will fly away from danger.

Adults are remarkably well-camouflaged for sitting on trees. Their body resembles a green leaf, even down to a detailed venation (veins in the leaf). Katydids will remain very still when on alert, but will quickly fly away when threatened, scared or disturbed. Nymphs (juveniles) have spots or speckles of black on them and eventually mature to the complete green color. 

In the end he flew away to safety!

OK folks, that's a wrap.

Have A FANTASTIC weekend!!
