Big Brown Grasshopper

This morning when I opened the glass door and pulled back the curtains, a big, brown grasshopper flew to the ground. It could be a brown Katydid, but I am not sure.

Katydids (Tettigoniidae) are longhorn grasshoppers that resemble a leaf, they are usually green in colour.big brown grasshopperWhen I brushed this insect about, it ended up on its back . . .  but in fear for its life, it quickly struggled to its upright position and flew away. big brown grasshopper big brown grasshopper
