[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The cicadas reach a body length of eight to nine millimeters.

The Rhododendron leafhopper (Graphocephala fennahi), so named as it feeds on the sap of rhododendrons, is native to the USA. The species was introduced to Great Britain in the 1930s and continental Europe in the 1970s. There has been suggestion that the rhododendron leafhopper contributes to the spread of a Rhododendron fungus through Europe.(Wikipedia)

Hi Siegfried.
Simply wonderful insect. I have not such species yet. Its shapes and colouration are very cute and you have reflected them perfectly. Deep green BG is great for this charming insect. Magnification level is also very impressive and exactness of tiniest details is spot on. Well done and warm greetings.

Good clarity amazing dept of field composition and briliant colors, Siggi. It is amazing to see this little creature in such detail indeed!
