The insects are tiny right now- it's hard to tell what exactly they'll be a few months from right now. This creature has been living amongst the leaves of a common milkweed plant that I have in a pot just near our deck. Since it lives in a potted plant, I can move the pot or rotate it to get just the right angle. Any guess as to what this creature may grow up to be? I'm guessing some type of katydid, but that is simply a guess.
Here's another image of a similar organism that I took a few days later.
