Leafhopper - Cuerna alpina

When I first saw this leafhopper I was on my knees in the leaf litter trying to get some shots of a spider. I was amazed to see such beautiful color on something so small. If I had been just walking down the trail there is no way that I would have seen it. It really makes me appreciate how much we see if we actually get down and look. This one was down the West Arm Road which is one of our favorite places.

I very much enjoy getting down on my hands and knees and seeing what's there. What a great perspective.

I Agree. Now we just have to wait for this snow to go.
