Whattaya know?

Whattaya know?

So why am I following up photos of my daughter’s wedding with yet another bug photo? 1) Because I can. 2) This isn't just another bug. 3) This katydid was actually a part of the proceedings.

As daughter and newly-minted husband were packing up the getaway car to make the drive to Tennessee and a new life together, I spotted something small and green on the tip of the antenna on the car. It turned out to be a katydid that had somehow perched itself there. Its picture now resides in the same collection as the wedding party, relatives and reception activities.

In Cherokee mythology, the katydid has the ability to forecast the future. This one wasn’t talking, so we’ll leave the future of the newlywed couple up to the One who knows it best.

I'm not a big fan of photos of bugs.

As a kid, when the new National Geographic would show up, I would try to turn the pages without touching the photos of bugs if there was a bug article in there.

But I have to say I love this one. His eyes look perfect, almost carrying a human look, in this photo.

I have to agree with Jam about the eyes on this character, but the shot of your daughter's eyes in her wedding photo is really wonderful.
