Katydids can be either predators or vegetarians

I'm betting this one that I found on plants in the growing area is a plant-eater. Nonetheless I couldn't bring myself to kill it. I have always liked these insects both for their curiously shaped bodies with their extravagantly long antennae and their distinctive night calls. I always think of them as insects of mid and late summer and, though it seems it was spring only yesterday, I guess its time for them!
