"Parts of" the Katydid (Grasshopper) Book
Yes, a katydid is just like a grasshopper. This particular model jumped onto my desk one day when I had left the screen door open (it was so lovely out). I didn't even know she wasn't a grasshopper until I analyzed the photos after returning her to the great outdoors. Then, my zoologist friend confirmed she was a katydid with an ovipositor loaded full of eggs. This book lets you examine her fascinating anatomy without the risk of her jumping away. The photos include the featured part in full-color while the rest of the image fades into muted shades of gray. For the first time, it is really clear what we want them to focus on!
