[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The family Tettigoniidae, known in American English as katydids and in British English as bush-crickets, contains more than 6,400 species. It is part of the suborder Ensifera and the only family in the superfamily Tettigonioidea. They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets than to grasshoppers.

Many tettigoniids exhibit mimicry and camouflage, commonly with shapes and colors similar to leaves.

Hi Atanu,
Great macro shot of this hopper. It looks like it was shot in the dark. The light and darkness kind of gives this guy a mysterius-evil look to it. Well done.
Denis.
