On my rose. No idea what it is and limited search turns up nothing for me.

Looks like a Katydid. They tear apart everything when the population gets too high.

Nice image!

That's a nymph (juvenile specimen) of the genus Scudderia (Scudder's Bush Katydid). There are several species but the nymphs are difficult to identify (at least for me).

Cheers
