I found this small bug on a tree in the backyard today. It is a leafhopper. While many of these bugs are colorful, this one is a dull brown. They are called leafhoppers because they eat leaves and their big hind legs allow them to leap pretty far.
Take a close look at the plant stem that the leafhopper is sitting on. Click on the photo to see a closeup. Do you see the hairs? It is amazing what we can see on living things when we pay close attention.
