I found a Blue-green Leafhopper on my Oceanspray shrub.
Leafhoppers eat leaves and excrete honeydew just like aphids- though I haven’t seen any ants farming these colorful insects.
Yes, that big white thing with the black dot in the middle IS an eye. Strange, huh?
This is the whole Oceanspray shrub (with Salal and Meadowfoam in the foreground). I pruned it hard during the winter and it is exploding this spring- more Leafhopper habitat…
