[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi Folks , today I have this leaf hopper image that I took earlier in the year. not being an expert on hoppers I will just provide a link to the wiki .

this is one of them subjects that just hopped in to sight when I was sitting at the park, judging by the way it acted when I got my photos it is an insect with quite good eyes , fortunately it hopped right in to range :-) so I did not have to chase it around ...

thanks for having a look

Hi Art,

I like your study in greens. Good contrast and soft background. I have not paid too much attention to leafhoppers. I saw one the other day, but you have to be quick to get a picture. It's interesting that they lack the chevrons on their back hopping legs that grasshoppers have -- or, maybe it's just that they're more subtle in a leafhopper. Anyway, I appreciate your sharing the view you had in the park. Nicely done!
