[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the first time I have seen and captured a Planthopper and insect from the Eurybrachyidae family
, a small family of Planthoppers found in Asia, Africa and Australia.

This particular species Eurybrachys tomentosa is found in India and Indonesia. The specimen here found in a mountaneous forest patch of the western ghats is only 10mm in length.

I noticed that this one jumped more than a feet when disturbed which is more than 30 times as compared to its body length.

The cloudy weather meant that, there was no option but to use flash.

Hello Himanshu,
I must admit I have never seen a plant hopper this colorful, it is definitely a new one for me. Love those bright reddish orange eyes in contrast to it's colorful body. A real beauty!!

How COOL IS THIS!!! Never have seen one before and they are "jewel" like ! WOW

Hello Himanshu,
It's truly a beautiful picture.Although it's tiny one,but it looks big here.Nice close-up with sharp focus and good use of flush.
Thanks for such beautiful picture,
Kind regards,
