I have been seeing these little guys hanging around on my lilac bush. They look like crickets, but I haven’t been able to identify them. Perhaps it’s a katydid nymph of some kind?

The Red Headed Bush Cricket, Phyllopalpus pulchellus, reminds you of a Cricket because it is a true Cricket in the family Gryllidae. According to BugGuide, it is also called a Handsome Trig.
