The green Katydid ready to copulate

During a night safari in Osa Peninsula, which is one of the most biodiversity places in earth, I noticed this green Katydid hanging under a leaf. It seemed to be read to copulate as it has the spermatophore (mass created by males, containing sperm cells and possible nourishment for the female, in which case it is called a nuptial gift) ready to be transferred to female.

Location: Drake Bay, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
