Bonus Video: Katydids’ Orchestra

To me this is the quintessential sound of a summer night. We’ve always had katydids in our neighborhood; and yes, they really do sound like they’re saying “Katy did, Katy didn’t.” By far the world’s longest-running stupid argument.

Depending on the species, they can make a lot of different sounds, and some of the tropical species are as big as your hand. The ones around here are about the size of your thumb. Like the one that tried to climb up Patty’s pants-leg (still laughing over the ensuing war dance…).

  1. This is such a reminder for me of my young life back in Missouri, where these were plentiful. I never hear them here in Idaho. Also, the lightening bugs that were so much fun when I was a kid.
