Thanks, everyone. :) ForestDragon, I checked quickly for bird grasshopper and the subfamily you mentioned in my area, and couldn't find anything. I think some more in depth research is needed when I have some time. But thanks for the tip! :)

I believe this may actually be a species of Bird Grasshopper. It is beautiful!
Try looking in Subfamily Cyrtacanthacridinae for your area.
