  30. LOL..it does look like that..I had just posted what I thought was a grasshopper to BugGuide and was told katydid…kaydids have long antenna and grasshoppers short ones so yours I think is a katydid..Oh I learned a female as yours is because of the long ovipositor that lets her cut into leaves and things……Michelle

  31. Love katydids! It does look like he’s trying to save the peanut for the long winter.
