This Leaf-footed Bug was on a blade of Johnson Grass that was on the side of a road I was walking. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.
They get their name from the small leaf-like enlargements on the hind leg.
How I Got The Photo – Leaf-footed Bug
I was walking a utility road on this refuge in an area called Willow Slough. Johnson Grass is overhead high along the roads and the dragonflies seem to like the grass. I was photographing a Dragonfly when I saw this Leaf-footed Bug.
I was hand-holding my camera and lens to get this shot.
