    Looks like a Katydid. They tear apart everything when the population gets too high.
     
  3. Nice contrast in colors

    Really nice color combinations in that picture as well as being nice and sharp.

    Great shot!
     
  4. Nice image!

    That's a nymph (juvenile specimen) of the genus Scudderia (Scudder's Bush Katydid). There are several species but the nymphs are difficult to identify (at least for me).

    Cheers
     
  5. Ah that explains no wings yet. my Google search for 'green insect with long black and white antennae' led me nowhere close. Thanks! Now I can tag it with something other than "Insect":confused:

    I guess that this is the European cousin of your Katydid: 2528305140_445b08994e_o.jpg

    This is probably a very juvenile nymph, 'cos it is much spottier :wink:
     
  7. Well done with your pics of the Katydid. Very nice color and sharpness.
