Katydid - or didn't

This is a Katydid. After hearing their incessant noise all night each Summer we have been here, we have finally seen one. It looks so like a leaf it isn't surprising that we haven't seen one until now.
In Spring and Summer they start singing to each other in the evenings and seem to say "Katy did... Katy didn't ... Katy did ... " and so on all night.
This was quite a surprise for us. Normally night time is quiet time, but in Spring and Summer it is noisy time here.
