I've seen Fork-tailed Bush Katydids in my yard several times before, but they're usually nymphs in mid-July. Unfortunately, I don't have a good shot of his supra-anal plate. My best guess is that he's a Fork-tailed Bush Katydid (Scudderia furcata), Curve-tailed Bush Katydid (Scudderia curvicauda), or a Texas Bush Katydid (Scudderia texensis). Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

definitely male Scudderia
S. furcata would be my best guess, but its tough to tell.
