Katydid – Or Did She?

When was the last time you hid in plain sight?

All my life Laurie πŸ˜‰

One interesting thing I discovered about 40 years ago about Katydids here in NZ, is that if you put one on a table, and get down about a foot away from it, and stare at it straight in the eyes, it will fly straight into your forehead.

I haven’t tried it for many years, but it worked reliably every time. The first time it happened I found it very disturbing, but when I repeated it, and it happened again, I kind of got used to it. Must be some fixed action pattern in their neural networks somewhere.

Not sure if it will work with yours, you may want to try and convince Len to give it a try πŸ˜‰
