Can someone tell me is this ia a female Northern Walking Stick. (Diapheromera femorata)?

Looks like either a female or an immature, or both:-) I don't think there is any other phasmid species that far north.

I have.....
a photo of a young male Walking Stick. It has the striped femur on the front legs and the body looks to be thinner than this individual.That is why I am thinking this may be a female.Take a look at this photo Both were small compared to the adults I had seen earlier so I figured they were both immatures. The terminal appendages look different also. Appreciate your reply, Eric.
