I had to look twice to confirm that I was looking at a katydid on palm frond. It's amazing how well the insect has come to mimic a leaf. That granulated material on the palm is probably pollen from one of the nearby trees.

Fabulous specimen... it belongs in the subfamily Phaneropterinae; the hind wings extending beyond the tip of the forewing is a give away.
