During a recent trip to Florida, (I live in the UK, I photographed these two insects outside the Visitor Centre at Big Cypress National Preserve in the Everglades (wonderful place and VERY nice people).

I understood from someone else who was visiting that they are Lubbock Crickets named after a town in Texas. I beleive they are two separate stages of the same insect.

Can anyone confirm the names (Scientific names would also be very helpful) and any other info. about the insects.

Bythe way, the photographs were taken with my F5 and 200mm Macro with flash (SB29 macro flash)
