Red-headed bush cricket

It is unlikely you have seen this local central Illinois insect (red-headed bush cricket). You may well have heard the noise produced by this insect on a warm summer night. Or, you may have heard its relative, the brown bush cricket. Our member, Gordon Adams, took this photo in his backyard (Peoria, IL). If you look carefully, you will observe this insect cleaning one antenna in its mouth.
