This is a rather frightening cricket that was found in the grass by the pond at Louisa County High School. It is unique in its coloring and shape, so he was difficult to identify.

Description from Wikipedia

Insects in the family Tettigoniidae are commonly called katydids or bush-crickets. There are more than 6,400 species. Part of the suborder Ensifera, it is the only family in the superfamily Tettigonioidea. The name is derived from the genus Tettigonia, first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1748.
