Please help I have been trying to figure out what these are but so far have been unsuccessful. The green one looks like some sort of shiledback katydid but not sure. I took that one in the summer 2007 in Florida. The other one has been prominent in my back yard (also in Florida) for almost a year, but still not sure what it is. Thanks a lot for your help

Hi Katelyn,
The insect we are not posting appears to be an immature katydid. Your other “ant thing” is actually a Stilt Legged Fly in the family Taeniapterinae and we located a lovely image on BugGuide.
