One day earlier this week, Monkeyman spotted this gorgeous green leaf bug on the side of the house. (In hindsight, I think the "grasshopper" I wrote about previously might have actually been a young green leaf bug also.) First, we captured him and put him into our bug house for observation, but we decided that the orange plastic made it too hard to see him clearly. So we built him a new house from a kit I brought home for him recently.
(We decided the most convenient construction location was the playhouse on the swingset. Of course.)
