    Love the brightly colored 'leaf hopper'. Really neat that that guy is so brightly colored like that. Must make him an easy target for birds and things though.

    I like both of these insects, but that leaf hopper looks like something I saw in a Marc Chagall painting years ago.........Beautiful. AL
