I turned over a fallen loquat leaf and found two katydid nymphs clinging to its underside. Siblings, I'm guessing, because they look the same age. I usually see just one of these at a time. Left, male; right, female.

After a minute of gentle disturbance due to my arranging the leaf for posing, both of them relieved themselves.

Lovely images. Very cool little creatures. Very nice detail and lighting. I like the colours in the leaf also.

Thanks to all who commented. I like the colors, too.

Warl0rd, you're right, the background doesn't help. Our yard is set up more for gardening than for photo-ing. When I find something like this, I take it to the potting bench and pose it in a hurry to stay ahead of the creatures that might get restless. I started out at BugGuide, where getting accurate images of specimens is the main goal; esthetics is way down on the list.
