We were sitting outside on our deck visiting with our neighbors when both Mr. Jenners and my neighbor got a weird look on their face and said, with some urgency, “Get out of the chair now. There is a weird bug by your head!!” I bolted out of the chair and just about had a heart attack when I realized this creature was just a few inches from my hair!!!
We Googled it and found out that it is indeed a Leaf Bug (which is unsurprising) and is usually found in Australia and Southeast Asia. What it is doing in a backyard in New Jersey is anyone’s guess.
Isn’t it weird that this is my SECOND “What is green…” post within a week? It makes me wonder what other green thing is going to come into my life soon. Perhaps I’ll be writing a “What’s Green, From Outer Space and Abducted Me Last Night?” post next week.
