    It looks like Pink Katydids also exist in adult form, and some of them can be quite vividly pink.

    Actually, those are mostly immature katydids. You can tell by the length of their wings. The one that is an adult is very lucky; bright pink is much worse camouflage than grass green!

    In a Butterfly Gardener’s backyard I once observed the most amazing dragonflies, one blue velvet, one red velvet, even one in an electric violet bodysuit! How do you encourage these eyezapping decor?
