Hi Steve

Some sort of katydid - possibly/probably a male Mountain Katydid (Acripeza 
reticulata) or something closely related. The female is much stockier, but both 
have bright red and blue colouration of the upper abdomen (concealed by the 
wings).  See for example

Not a bird but photographed last night on fly-wire screen.
Camera - only one available at time - compact Olympus - flash used.
Fascinating, unusual, unknown to me.  Any suggestions?
