Presque Isle on a Stormy Evening

A couple of weeks back, I stopped by the beach at sunset.
It was windy and spitting rain off and on.
The sky was intense and full of fast-moving clouds.
And the wind was whipping the water into the kind of waves we don't often see on the lake.

The Katydid, and a Secret Shame

Let me start by saying that when you have to be shamed into updating your blog by someone like dmack, things are pretty bad. I'm not even employed right now, for the love of God, and I can't seem to be bothered.
So, by popular demand (from dmack anyway), here's a cool bug I saw yesterday.
I'm pretty sure it's a katydid, but if I'm wrong, please let me know. Loads of people out there have way more entomology skills than I do.

Dude was just chilling on the stem of a dead flower.
And he's missing one of his antennae....hope he can still find his way around, or sniff things out, or whatever he uses those things for.
