A green insect that looks like a bit like leaves?

15 years ago

A short while ago, I was in my backyard watering my elephant ears when suddenly I realized that this was a bug and not a crumpled leaf. I was suddenly surprised that I ran in and got a digital camera.

I did a search online and didn't find anything so I pretty much gave up. I figured it was one of those rare bugs that just pop up and disappear and no one would quite know what it was.

Until tonight when I saw two!

Bad picture since it was taken at night:

Does anyone have any idea on what they are? I thought maybe it could be a type of grasshopper but even that search isn't bringing anything up.

It's incredibly neat how the body looks like a leaf was folded in the right places.
