Did we stump you

Haven’t heard back..Did I stump you?
We did not see your identification request the first time you sent it. We consulted with Eric Eaton on this and his response is: “Daniel: Ok, the cricket is a nymph of a female redheaded bush cricket, Phyllopalpus pulchellus. Nice image. They really are a gaudy insect, especially when they are young:-) Eric” We are linking to the Bugguide information page on the Red Headed Bush Cricket which is also called the Handsome Trig. We have a vague recollection of that unusual name being in the news recently with regards to the national elections.
