Goodness Gracious, the water drop on the insect's leg has enlarged it like a lens, showing fine hair on it, Leonid!
What an original picture, man!
There are globules of moisture on its back too.
This is a fantastic macro image and I mean it.
Well done and thanks for showing this unique and stunning image.

I am sure you get up every morning very early, with a spraybottle filled with water and give the insects a lovely refreshing shower, before you grab your camera and photograph them with the water droplets still fresh on their bodies. I hope you know that I am only joking, because you have told me before that you like to photograph early in the morning when the dew is still fresh. This image is just like all your others worth a round of applause and deserves an A+ rating.

A macro that is showing veery bit of detail and what hairy legs ..they look quite magnified wit the help of the huge dew drop sticking to its legs.I have never seen so much of details on a leafhopper though i have seen them in plenty.
I like the buttery smooth BG and also the little mustard like eye and the patterns/designs of brown on its mouth as if someone just picked up and brush and drew them there.The dew drops are the heroes here more than the leafhopper making the whole composition extremely dynamic.Very good sharpness and superb DoF.
Thanks for sharing.
