Dear Lincoln,
Within moments of attempting your identification, we found an image on Piotr Naskrecki’s blog The Smaller Majority that was identified as a Blue Legged Sylvan Katydid,
Zabalius ophthalmicus.  An image on the IUCN Red List site shows the blue hind legs.  An image on the Orthoptera Species File site is a duplication of the pose in your image.
