Unknown Katydid on Monty's fingertips

I came across a katydid behind the kitchen door last night, and caught it in my hands. It seemed quite willing to walk over my hands, and sometimes sit and preen its antennae, though it also made a few short distance launches within the house. This photo is Monty's and it's shown on Monty's fingertips; the lighting was poor in his room. I don't think I have the "what to look for" to identify these to species.
