Visitor to a Mexican olive flower
When I was at the Bullas’ place on February 24th I got close to this flower on a Mexican olive tree, Cordia boissieri, and in looking through my macro lens I found what appeared to be a katydid nymph that was mostly inside the flower. The insect soon moved, but not before I managed to get a picture of it.
The Mexican olive grows natively in Mexico, of course, but also in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. As was true here, people have planted the tree as an ornamental farther north in Texas.
