Leafhopper (Three Photographs)

Leafhoppers are not a gardener’s friend. They siphon out sap from leaves, but they are fodder for almost every insect (spiders, assassin bugs, robber flies etc.) and many birds. That said leafhoppers are among the most interesting insects I have found to look at given their markings and color. There are many varieties and I have featured the candy-stripped leafhopper on my blog in the past. They are tiny, around a centimeter or less long but their color and movement give them away. If you photograph them, their eyes are liquid filled and hard to get sharp in camera, sharpening your photograph in post-processing helps.
