Bush Katydid

This nymphal insect was on a Deutzia shrub in the garden. At first I thought it was one of the assassin bugs, but according to a response to my photo on BugGuide, it actually a Scudder's Bush Katydid (Scudderia sp.). Members of the Scudderia genus are apparently not identifiable to species in their nymphal stage.
