Fork-Tailed Bush Katydid Munches Day-lily - Scudderia furcata - male

Fork-Tailed Bush Katydid Munches Day-lily - Scudderia furcata - Male
Summerville, Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA
May 29, 2009
I went outside to take a picture of the day-lily. What a nice surprise to find such an interesting as well as cooperative subject. While I did not get a usable image of the "fork" I do remember seeing it and it was most like the one in the key drawings for Sp. furcata. Please let me know if I'm off base on this ID.
