Let Us Enjoy the Morning Glories!

The morning glories are finally blooming and doing well.

At first glance.

But looking more closely, you can see that something is eating some of them!

Here's the pest! It's a male. He's called shouryou (long "o") battamodoki. Batta is grasshopper in Japanese. His name is gonista bicolor in Latin.

Morning glories close in the afternoon, but we'd like to enjoy them as long as possible. I left him alone, though. Click to enlarge the pictures.
