Katydid-dendum

Thanks to Ethan Kistler for pointing out my misidentification of the alleged Greater Angle-wing. It is actually a species of Round-headed Katydid (genus Amblycorypha). There are a dozen or so of those around, and they are apparently tough to ID to species. Angle-wings lack the brownish coloration on the haed/nape area.

Ethan is rapidly becoming one of Ohio's premier entemologists, birders, and overall naturalists. You've maybe seen his posts on the Ohio Birds listserve, but his depth of interests goes way beyond birds, obviously. See his blog here.
