Name this Bug

I have no idea what this bug is, but it is one of the most interesting I have ever seen.  It was crawling around some flowers in my front yard.  Click on the image for a closeup.

Any ideas?  Leave me a comment if you do!

UPDATE- Thanks for the tip Kim (see comment below)!  It is a katydid nymph.  Remember that a nymph is a stage before it becomes an adult.  The fact that it looked like a grasshopper of some sort but did not have any wings yet should have been a hint for me!
