Balancing Act

By KarenFB
My favourite Froghopper (Cercopis vulnerata). If threatened they leap away with a 'click'! (Makes my grandson laugh every time!).

The young of this species live underground, feeding on roots, though still in a nest of bubbles. I love their bright colours, very eye catching amongst the green.

Thanks everyone! Smile

We've got loads of them - they seem to prefer the nettles on the sunny side of the lane.

A cracking compact camera close up Karen, one of your best I'd say given that this insect is really tiny
