Green Katydid or Grasshopper?

by Hanifa September. 10, 2015 1686 views

I would like to keep this beautiful grasshopper but my friend suggested it's better I leave it to die in nature where it belongs.

Note: Before I was thinking this is a very beautiful grasshopper but this morning (9/24/2015) I saw an insect in the order of Orthoptera which means ‘straight wings’. This insect has extremely long antennae, like katydid, even longer than their body. I'm guessing this beautiful insect might be a green katydid not a grasshopper. Hope any expert in entomology would explain this beautiful insect?

Now I'm sure this a green katydid. It's so beautiful. (30/9/2015)
