I found this on my Bay bush beside my house. I'm not sure what it is.


fork-tailed bush katydid nymph?
I think the insect is a fork-tailed bush katydid (Sudderia furcata) nymph, though it's always harder to identify creatures during their immature stages. I believe those are fairly common in the east. I've seen several similar katydid nymphs where I live in Springfield, VA.

Looks to me like a katydid nymph, but I can't tell you anything more specific than that.
