Seen earlier this year in South-eastern Turkey. Some kind of cricket perhaps? Whatever, he's amazing...
It looks like a Giant Bush Cricket, not sure which one though.
I'd had that thought, but in all the hundreds of pics that a web search comes up with, nothing seems even close. :-(
It's a Tettigoniidae from the subfamily Saginae. In Europe we only have Saga pedo, but in Turkey there are more species and genus and I don't know its fauna.
