Turkish Cricket

Took these pictures of a cricket in Turkey - pine forest, about 500m above sea level, in SW Turkey.  Any ideas?

    Fantastic image. I can get as close as Eupholidoptera, one of the bush cricket genus, which has a number of species. It is distributed across the northern Mediterranean Basin from Southern France to Israel. I'm sure one of our specialistas can get closer than me though...

    I also think Eupholidoptera.  The "spikey" bit is the female ovipositor through which she lays her eggs.
