I so rarely see these guys in the act of crawling around. Anything you can do with these or cast skins from photos? Thanks!

Tibicen tibicen/chloromerus
Likely a Tibicen tibicen ("swamp cicada") nymph, note the black base of wing pad, a diagnostic characteristic for this species.

I agree ...looks like Tibicen tibicen (chloromerus)
I agree ...looks like Tibicen tibicen (T. chloromerus as I still prefer to call them)

+ note the really green legs and greenish eyes

Thanks, Bill!
I added that synonym to our Maryland Biodiversity Project page for the species:

Thank you!
That is definitely compelling.
