My Dad took of picture of this in his back yard. Any idea on what it is? He lives in coastal North Carolina.

Hi Michelle,
This looks like a Toothpick Grasshopper. There are several possible species. Stenacris vitreipennis is the Glassy Winged Toothpick Grasshopper. Our Audubon Guide lists it as green and BugGuide also pictures it as green, but Eric Eaton comments there that the species is rarely green. The Cattail Toothpick Grasshopper, Leptysma marginicollis, is also pictured on BugGuide.
