When I saw this katydid she was calm, like a normal katydid. As I approached, she spread her wings as defensive behavior (deimatic behavior). She is saying: keep away, I'm dangerous. But it's inoffensive.
Brazilian Atlantic Forest, above 950m.
This katydid was photographed in Serra dos Órgãos National Park, in Teresópolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
