I found this little specimen sitting on top of my avocado sapling this morning. It’s only about 1/4 long from head to rear, not including the antennae. The body shape is grasshopper-like but more lanky, and it moved very slowly. Luckily I had my camera all set up for macro and got a nice close up. Creepy! Any idea what I’ve got here? Thanks.

Bush Katydid Nymph

Hi Colin,
You are correct.  This is a very young nymph of a Bush Katydid, and your photo is beautiful.
