You're welcome. It's definitely more colorful than the other. That was the closest I could find, shape-wise. It's a pretty cool little bug.

Thanks e.drinnon. Looks very close except for the awesome colors on this little nymph!

It's a katydid nymph. Not sure about the species, but it looks similar to this: http://bugguide.net/node/view/652172/bgi...
