Creosote Bush Katydid

This Katydid likes water
We live in Surprise Arizona and we were swimming in our pool tonight and found this weird looking grasshopper. I saved him and told the boys we would find out what it is on the net. Well we couldnt find out what it was exactly only to learn that it is a Katydid at least I think. By the way how do you pronounce Katydid?

Hi Rob,
We needed to turn to Eric Eaton for a proper identification of your colorful Katydid (as in Katie did the dishes.) Here is his reply: “It is a species of Insara, can’t tell which one. One goes by the name of Creosote Bush Katydid, but all are from the southwest U.S. Nifty! Eric”
