Thanks Laura. The antennae are pretty wild. I was so lucky this just landed in front of me or I would have never saw it.

The long antenna make clear it's a Katydid (or bush-cricket). Grasshoppers have short (and rather thick) antenna.

Looks more like a katydid than a grasshopper. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tettigoniid...
