leaf bug

My older daughter caught this insect in the yard. It's wings look just like a green leaf- down to the veins and blemish spots. It is pretty incredible. So of course I took lots of pictures, and then we let it go- in the pepper plants, where it blended in so well I could never find it again even though I've looked! Maybe he moved elsewhere...

Very cool bug. This is the first time I saw one (aside from photographs).

I understand that these insects suck the sap out of plants. You might not want them in your garden.
