Hi there
I came across this insect while holidaying in Marloth Park – Mpumalanga Dec 2012.

Orthopteran

Orthopteran

Dear unsure,
This is some species in the order Orthoptera that contains Katydids, Crickets and Grasshoppers.  We are unsure of its identity.  A head on view is not the ideal vantage for trying to identify an unknown creature.  A lateral view would be highly preferred.  It also appears that this is a Longhorned Orthopteran in the suborder Ensifera.  We were unsure of your location, but we now know that Marloth Park and Mpumalanga are in South Africa.
