"I found this guy on my mom’s porch when I went over for dinner, he (or she) was kind enough to pose for some photos. Sadly, the iPhone does not like taking macros so this is the only one that came out well.

Hi.  You’ve got yourself a Katydid in the family Tettigoniidae there.  It could be one of the Angle Winged Katydids, and here is a similar creature on bugguide.   
Katydids are relatives of grasshoppers and crickets.  Males make noise at night to attract females with their wings.  I’ve read that they get their name from the sound they make “katy-diddd katy diiid”  If they say so…
