Many thanks Ernie.
What a great close up photo of the leaf hopper! I have never seen such in real, but it looks like from another planet. Here in Japan we have cool looking insects (at least according to me because I’m from Scandinavia and the Asian insect species look different and are therefore exciting to discover), but I’ve never seen a cool alien looking leaf hopper like that before. : )
