I read that these leafhoppers like to sit facing the stem end of a leaf and when I looked at all the hoppers on the sage, this was definitely a fact.
Everybody faced down which made it kind of hard to get a good shot of them. At least I have experience in that sort of thing...trying to photograph animals and bugs and birds who do their best to avoid getting their face in a phot0.
They're such pretty little things but the reason I try to get my camera as close to them as possible (they're only about 3/8" long) is because of their faces.
They don't have your normal (whatever that is) bug face, they have faces that look like little tree frogs. :-) I just think they're adorable. I've been getting in their little amphibian looking faces for three days and look forward to the day when I have that digital SLR so I can get an even better look at them.
And since this baby bird grasshopper seems to be aware of my future plans, he is planning a big leap out of here...
Not that back views can't be pretty darn cute too.
