I thought this was called a leaf hopper, but apparently it's called a katydid or bush cricket, though its Latin name is Tettigoniidae, which apparently means "leaf hopper," though the bug commonly known as leafhopper belongs to a different classification entirely. Go figure. It is polygamous, meaning two males successively mate with a female, with the first one more likely to donate his genes to offspring. The males make a helluva racket with their mating calls unless they turn off their engines. So fillerup and shutup.
