Caption: Female bush cricket with a long ovipositor. Bush crickets (family Tettigoniidae), also known as katydids, inhabit mostly tropical regions. They usually feed on leaves and flowers, although they are capable of preying on other insects and small reptiles. The spiny forelegs are used to catch prey and the large ovipositor (protrusion, upper left) at the posterior end is used for laying eggs in rotten wood. The head and antennae are at lower right. Photographed in Ecuador.
