A tiny guy - not much bigger than a sesame seed.  I think this is a nymph of the Two-striped Planthopper, but I'm not sure.  I can't imagine trying to ID some of the creepy crawlies I'm finding w/o the internet - man, there's a ton of cool stuff out there!

What a funny little critter! You are a master at finding these little ones and getting great shots of them.
