Spot the katydid!

It’s time for one of our favorite features, courtesy of reader Mark Sturtevant:

It has been a while since we had a ‘Spot the ______’ challenge, and I found I had a couple more. So here is a spot the katydid challenge. Can you find the katydid in this picture?

Click to enlarge; answer at 1 p.m. Chicago time. I would rate this one as “pretty hard.”

    There seems to be a hint in that the focal plane is in the foreground half. But, I have yet to find the bug.

      According to Steely Dan, Katy lied!

    Oh very clever, I see what you did there: the katydid took the photo! Oui?

    By chance I just happened to start examining the section of the enlarged image which contained the bug and so found it immediately. My fastest find the _____ ever. A second or less.

    Stumbled across it rather quickly, by chance, as well. Just started in the right place.

    I got it! Can’t believe it! With things like Katydids I sometimes can’t see them even when they’re pointed out.:-/

      I usually only see them when they jump or fly, right in front of me.
