The Last of the Meadow Dancers
on the walnut-tree over the well. - Walt Whitman
Last month Satch found perhaps the last of bit of summer...a rather large, lime green Katydid. He brought it home to the observation tank and filled it with a variety of leaves and a cap full of water. I read that Katydids have a short life span and explained to Satch that this little critter is at the end of its life cycle. However, it's still kickin'...and we keep feeding it fresh greens. The Katydid or Orchelimum means "meadow dancer".
