Locust Nymph?

Walking every morning again with the camera in a backpack. Great way to burn off the calories acquired over Christmas and the New Year. Being a firm believer in multi-tasking, the morning walks also give me an opportunity to spy on my wild neighbors. During this morning's walk, what looked like a piece of wrinkled brown leaf turned out to be this.A golden colored locust with new wings. It looked similar to an earlier specimen that I photographed, which was smaller and a darker color. I've pulled out the earlier photo for easy comparison. Could this be a locust nymph in its various growth stage?
