Oblong-winged katydid

Males have stridulant organ on the wings. They produce this sound
by rubbing wings together to attract females for mating.


  1. Katydids are such wonderful insects to photograph...those faces ;) You got some great shares here. Come to think of it, along with few butterflies, I have only seen a single Katydid all Summer...hmm

  2. Hi Dominique,
    again fantastically photographed .. the picture where he looks right into the camera is my Favoriet
    regards Frank

  3. Hello Dominique,
    I see some really nice pictures of this grasshopper. I also watched your video and for the first time that I see how these locusts make the sound I always hear :-) Really nice to see.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    And also as a response to your comment to me about the Sand Lizard.

    Hi Dominic,
    there is a separate blog on the sand lizard because I have really really nice photos :-) Too bad you do not know but also nice that you so again what to teach him.
    Greetings, Helma
