As I was sowing my dill seeds in a ceramic container just outside our kitchen, I noticed this Katydid (an insect that looks remarkably like a leaf). I watched it for a few long minutes: I found it so fascinating. Usually, these insects camouflage themselves on bushes so they can blend in with their environment. I don't know what this little guy was up to, because he stood out like a sore thumb on the terracotta background. I left it alone, it wasn't bothering anyone.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
