A totally different genus of planthopper; I think this is a Coppery Leafhopper.  Small, wary, and already tremendous jumpers - I swear I hear a little "*ping*", and they're gone?!?!  I never even really know what they look like until I pull 'em up on the display.

100-400 4.5-5.6 L IS II + extension
1/100, f/10, ISO 1600
Hand held, natural light, big crop

Comments and suggestions welcome.
Good light,

An excellent image and a wonderful subject. I like the spaciousness of the curving leaf setting.

Thanks for another insight, Craig- all these creatures unknown and unseen by most of us. Excellent shot!
