This morning I was walking my dog and, as we passed by a neighbor’s house, I noticed this little fellow on one of their sunflower plants. I say little because it’s a nymph and it’s about .5 – .75 inches long. My dog cooperated by sitting while I grabbed a bunch of photos.
Order Orthoptera : Suborder Ensifera : Infraorder Tettigoniidea : Family Tettigoniidae : Subfamily Phaneropterinae : Scudderia septentrionalis
The insect was on a sunflower plant in a neighbor’s front yard.
I did a bit of editing using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I adjusted the lighting, increased the contrast, clarity, sharpness and detail, then made a slight adjustment to the levels.
