I love this girl. It is as if she sprouted straight from the earth, like a fiddlehead fern, instead of from her mama's womb. Give her less than an hour in a field, and she will capture some type of critter, be it a snake, a lizard, an insect. I'm not always sure who is more attracted, she to the earth's wild creatures, or they to her.
In this photo, we had all sought shelter from the rain and gathered round in a circle during a weekend music festival. This little katydid definitely sought out Isa, and wanted her undivided attention. I love her sweet, surprised expression, and you can almost hear her little intake of breath as the bug alights on her nose.
