Caught a lot of bugs during this Sunday's hunting trip. No dragonflies though :/
Pics of the larger insects:
While walking towards the bird sanctuary, a green flying thing was spotted. Thought it was a bird at first. It's a katydid!
For a sense of scale, this is a peanut butter jar.
After most people left, we went cricket hunting. Then I saw this mantis. It flew off a couple of times and was nicely camouflaged in the tall grass. The red coloring helped give it away.

Also caught a caterpillar. Black body with spines. Yellow stripes dotted with red spots. Spines protrude from the red spots. The yellow stripes form a Y shape at the head.
What species is this?
Didn't freeze it. I'm hoping I can raise it.
