Tree cricket nymph.
They often pose this way, but I have no idea why:-) This is probably a nymph of the twospotted tree cricket, Neoxabea bipunctata.

Twospotted Tree Cricket
Thanks Eric. He's a very cute little guy, face looks like Bambi. Yes the pose is interesting. He/she holds it for quite a while.

This is my favorite nymph photo of N. bipunctata
Sooo cute.
