Whata strange and original creature Marie! I saw a lot of different species from this family before, but this one is new for me :)
You done a very good educasional work, and even if quality of picture is not perfect, I am giving you with great pleasure 2 points for this unique and interesting entomological photo!

Hi My friend Marie,
Great macro capture of this nymph of the horned leaf hopper with great details and sharpness. A great scientific document too.
TFS and greetings from Cyprus,

Nice shot of this fascinating insect, you did well to catch it on a birch, as I would think they don't land on them often, otherwise they would be eaten into extinction.
What superb camouflage!

Excellent macro of a Lerdra aurita nymph taken from a fine dorsal POV with good sharpness and lighting on the contrasting birch bark.
This species, which I have not seen, is rare in Sweden: the adult has two ear-like projections on its back, which is why it is called aurita.
TFS this fine macro,

What a peculiar looking animal this is - a Leafhopper feeding on lichen! Very clever of you to find it! I wonder if you could have got a side view as well, although you say it was very flat. Its shape and pattern shows up very well here on the white bark. Well done!!
TFS and cheers, Ulla
