These are Grasshopper wings, and we are very confident they are the wings of a Green Milkweed Locust, Phymateus viridipes. As they are toxic to many animals and presumably unpalatable to others, we are curious what ate the body and left the wings behind. Here is an image from FlickR and information on Wikipedia.
