Just purely out of curioisity i was wondering what bug this is,I tried to look it up but could not find anything that exactly looked likes this bug it almost looks like a cricket but has what looks to be a big stinger on the back of it.
This is a Lesser Meadow Katydid in the genus Conocephalus and the straight ovipositor on her posterior end identifies her as a female. We are not certain of the species, but BugGuide provides some great images of various species in the genus.
