Hi Ridvan. I have no idea of the ID. a very unusal looking thing. i am sure you will get some help with the name from some one on TN. good detail and POV. well done TFS.

you show an interesting picture and insect. Despite the low size one can recoginze details very well. I think it's a larva of a cicada (see cicindela). Cicada of the Fulguromorpha group often show wax-like appendages (German: Wachsschweif).
Best wishes, Peter

Buffffffffff que espectacularidad, Desconozco totalmente esta especie aunque por características me recuarda al pulgón lanígero del manzano jeje. Saludos y sigue disparando tan bien !

I don't think this is a cicada, it is more likely a mealy bug of the family Coccoidea.
You've really managed to get an excellent shot showing sharp details and the composition is excellent.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Great close-up of whatever this interesting little thing turns out to be. The details are amazing showing the eye and the cottony texture. I'll check back to see if there is a definitive ID.

Sorry, but I can't help you out with the exact name of this very small bug, but it's one of the familia HEMIPTERA
Suborder Homoptera, also called leafhoppers in English.
You've done a great job on this one getting it this close, sharp and excellent exposed with all the whites it uses as cover.
Wonderful details to.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards and have a nice evening,

merhaba Rıdvan, tür konusunda bir fikrim yok ama ben de Homoptera'nın cırcırlarından olduğunu sanıyorum. değişik bir çekim, ama güzel bir kare. renkler de çok güzel. eline sağlık, selamlar.

While the entomologists have a field day over the ID of this insect, I can only say that you have captured a very vivid picture on an interesting creature, Ridvan.
Well done and TFS.

Really a small insect. Most probably some aphid. Although small but nicely captured. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I do not know the species name, but this is a bug belonging to Homoptera. And moreover it is a larva which uses some substances to camouflage.
Very interesting picture, also for the entomologist! :)

Salam Aleykum Ridvan,
Looks like a leafhopper to me. If I can remember correctly, this bug can "split" its body to creat many, many babies all by itself without contact with another of its species. I saw a programe on TV a long time ago of a very similar bug. I believe it was in Brazil.
Loot from South Africa will know for sure what this is.
Any way this is an AMAZING image.
EXCELLENT work, again.

This is a very unusual insect, it's what I love most about TrekNature seeing things I would not normally see. You've captured excellent details and sharp vivid colour. Absolutely fascinating.
