The small size of the wings indicated this was a young katydid. The body was about an inch long.

  It’s also known as a long-horned grasshopper because of the length of its antennae.

 Its diet consists of  leaves, flowers, bark and seeds.

  The length of its antennae also distinguishes it from a grasshopper.

It was so nice of it to pose for me.
