Moved from Tree Crickets. Beautiful photo.

The pale limbs, orange on the head, and black spots on white fields on the pedicel and scape at the base of antennae are indicative of Snowy tree cricket.

There is a chance they could be Riley's TCs, but the black markings look prominent and similar in size -- so I'm guessing Snowy.

 
Wow, thanks for the speedy ID
