Greater Angle-wing Katydid Nymph  (three photos)
Genus Microcentrum rhombifolium
4 mm (body length)

Found this tiny Katydid nymph and one other on my yellow roses.  I can't
believe how long their antennae are. If I showed them, this photo would take up the
 whole page.  You can see the length in the bottom photo.  Carol Davis 6-27-2010

Microcentrum katydid nymph in Utah

katydid nymph
This was the first Greater Angle-wing Katydid nymph I had ever seen.  It was
very cooperative since it had never seen a human before--curiosity seems to rule
in the very young.
  Look at the very long antennae.  If you don't have a macro lens
 to take insect photographs, you can always get a lighted magnifier to assist in seeing
the wonders of the insect world.   Carol Davis, 6-3-2009
