She Knows Where She's Going

Acripeza reticulata (Mountain Katydid) found marching through alpine dunes on the edge of Lake Augusta, Central Highlands, Tasmania.

This is a member of the bush cricket family. This is a female and is flightless. The male apparently is quite different and can fly. Very cool katydid!
