UPDATE: These creatures are called Katydids’ in US English, and ‘Bush-Cricket’ in British English. :D They are also called long horned grasshopper. They belong to the family “Tettigoniidae”. However, these creatures are more related to Crickets than grasshoppers.

 

“It looked menacing, with its horns..

Its eyes told pages of anger,

It wanted to hide, 

It hardly what it has already achieved..!!”

  1. Look at “little big man” 🙂 That is a perfect blending.
    A member of another world that we giants only can imagine…
    Happy weekend to you!

  2. I don’t know anything about insects in India, but it looks more like a katydid than a grasshopper.

    I like the theme you use for your posts. it really accents your photos nicely.
