Description:

No, this is not Photoshopped. She was really bubble-gum pink. I attended a naturalist workshop in western Ohio, and one group came back from the field with this rare color morph. (Besides pink, bush katydids can also be yellow or orange.) In my childrenes picture book, Curious Critters, this lady bemoans her unusual color...that is, until she realizes that her unique coloration might have its advantages.

At the bookes web site, www.curious-critters.com, I offer an inside perspective on photographing for and writing Curious Critters.
