An Urban Surprise

We returned home to urban Pretoria, and had a super surprise waiting for us on our garage door. A Blue-legged Sylvan Katydid (Zabalius ophthalmicus) had decided to “hide” right there. I imagine they are plentyful, but we rarely see them. This fellow was at least 80mm long, and one would think would be very easy to find, and a great treat for one of our African grey hornbills, but quite clearly in the right location, that camouflage will be incredibly effective.

The great thing is that we are able to get these amazing natural wonders in our own back yards!
