[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a little Leafhopper, Coelidia olitoria, I think, that I photographed in my yard yesterday afternoon. There are roughly 2,500 species of Leafhoppers in North America, so ID'ing them to the species level can be virtually impossible for an amateur like me. :-)

The camera was hand-held, using the pop-up flash which was diffused using a Puffer flash diffuser.

Hello John,
Another wonderful presentation from you. The natural colors really shows off this pretty little Leafhopper. I can't say I've seen this particular species before, as the ones around here are usually green or a light greenish blue color.
Again you captured exceptional detail and white balance looks great.
