Can't have Critter Week without bugs.
Katydids sing to us on summer nights. And they're kind of cute.
Mantids look scary, but they eat other bugs. Cool by me.
This one's looking at me.
Cicadas make a huge racket on hot summer days. This one just molted and is drying its wings. They are large bugs, which is really fun when one gets in the house. Fun for the cats. Not the humans.
Bees are always welcome in the garden.
