Very large grasshopper. Maybe 4 inches long. People I was with called it a Longosta. Which I believe means lobster.
Semi-arid tropical forest
Saw this guy flying by when I was mountain biking with a bike club in the high country of northeast El Salvador. It watched it, it landed on a tree a ways away, and I ran over keeping my eye on the spot. Found it sitting on a branch, and I caught it so as to have a little photoshoot.
