Broad-winged Bush Katydid

Broad-winged Bush Katydid
The broad-winged bush katydid is a member of the order Orthoptera. Members of this order are winged insects with strong hind legs which help them jump. Orthoptera consists of over 21,000 known species including grasshoppers, locusts, katydids and crickets. The broad-winged katydid gets its name from its wide leaf like wings. They are usually found in the tops of trees or bushes where they feed on leaves. I found this one on the hood of my car when I returned from Hiking at Crex Meadows.
