Not a spider on the spiderwort
Last time you saw some spiderwort buds (Tradescantia spp.) from the preserve behind the Austin Nature Center on March 23rd, but mostly on that outing I looked at spiderwort flowers rather than buds. When I got close to this spiderwort flower I noticed a green nymph that I think might be Dichopetala catinata, the spoon-tailed short-winged katydid. Note how the curve of its antenna continues the curve of its back.
