Katydid Or Katydidn’t

Not sure whether she flew away or blew away, but after this snap was taken by Susan, I set the katydid on a callalily leaf in hopes it would live to see another day. A short while later I came out to check and the critter seemed pretty spent, but then a bit later I checked again and she was gone.

Before Susan took that picture I had spied the insect on the ground by the house with a rear leg snagged in an abandoned spider web, and I freed it, then spent some time trying to get the remnants of the still-sticky threads from her foot.
