Not the greatest photo--it actually was moving kind of quickly!
put I found this on the gravel road and took some pictures of it and then turned it loose in my flowerbed, but am curious as to what it will become
anybody know?

I also just recently learned that the monarchs with the two spots on their lower wings- like your fine image- are the males. The females do not have the spots

It is a Scudderia sp., but I'm not sure which. Could be furcata (Fork-tailed Bush Katydid), but I can't remember the range. There are several other species with females that look almost identical, especially in a photo, excellent as it is. The shot by TomC is another genus of katydids, maybe Amblycorypha (perhaps A. oblongifolia, but looks bigger?); again, there are several species that look very similar -- this one is a male. Compare the triangles at the upper base of the wings of the two, the first is relatively smooth (female), the second (male) has a stridulum, the dark line across the triangle base. The females answer the males call with exact timing, but only with a tick or click or two or three, a much simpler song that does not require as complex a structure as in males. One group, A. uhleri and a couple of close relatives, sing very complex calling songs with 4 parts, each with a different function (drawing in females, signalling them to stop and answer, spacing competing males, and confusing them with a female-mimicking series of ticks).

very interesting--thank you

thanks everyone for looking and commenting.
A friend who really knows her stuff says it is a fork tailed katydid and kind of a rare thing to see--at least around here
and just to let you know it was back again today in that same clump of flowers

Agreed, but my question is how? Did you shoot burst or grab from 40K or just get a very lucky shot?

just a lucky shot! I had noticed it hanging around in the tiger lilys went in the house and got my camera it had been on the flower and flew away and must have decided to come back and I just happened to snap at the right moment!

I had noticed this swallowtail in my flowerbed and grabbed the camera. They sure don't sit still very long, but happened to get this lucky shot of this one ready to land on a flower.
