Someone told me this little insect of the grasshopper family was a "Cathydid".
It sure is well equipped to hide in the leaves.

Lots of wonderful green colour there!

I think the word is Katydid... I don't think Cathy had anything to do with it ;)

Thanks for the comments Iguanasan... and, of course, the correction. Evidently you are right, Cathy was not even around and the right word is KATYDID.

Just as additional information I forgot to include with my first post.
This picture was taken hand held with a Nikon D90 18-55MM kit lens. f/5.6, 1/160 lens zoomed at max (55MM), no flash.
The composition could have been better given more time... This little guy did not stay put very long.
