[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae (Long-horned Grasshoppers, Katydids)

The Katydids in our area are either green or brown. They lay their eggs on branches other other surfaces in a linear pattern as this image depicts. Some deposit their eggs into plant tissues. they have very long filimentous antennae.

This picture is not particularly awsome, but it demonstates part of the biology (life cycle) of Katydids.

Hello Mike,
It may not be a beautiful butterfly or a colorful bird photo, but this is still part of nature, and deserves it's place here on TN.
To tell you the truth I have never actually seen eggs like this, but because of your well detailed photo, I will keep my eyes open for them in future outings. Awesome shot!!
