My best macro yet, I think.
Not in the same league as some here, but I'm OK with it.
I looked it up and it seems to be called a Rhododendron Leafhopper?
A little guy- about 1/8" wide and 3/8" long.

A new one to me. Great colours - I'd like you to get in MUCH closer next time and see a head-on (if the little blighter will stay still long enough)

Thanks for the comment.
This guy actually did sit still for a long time for me. Maybe next time I'll get a closer look...
