Green Leafhoppers Gyponana
Little green leafhopper, possibly genus Gyponana
These elusive little hoppers have been hopping, and flying, away from me for years, but I finally got them! This pair is not so happily paused on my thumbnail. They're really little bugs.
This hopper was hanging out on a Corky Stem vine.

So was the Leaffooted bug nymph in the background; I had better luck photographing the nymph.

I was really excited about finally getting a good shot of one of these green leafhoppers when this one was in my car one morning, but darn it - I was on the way to work, it was dark, it was raining, the flash glared, and I had to let it go and get on my way to make it on time. Once more it was a bug for a later day.

Then I found this bug, and while I prefer my bugs alive, it's also interesting to know what eats them. This Ambush Bug was kind enough to hold this green leafhopper still while I took a few pictures of them.

...and then back to this pair which finally gave me enough  pictures of these tiny green leafhoppers to make a page about them. I think that they're leafhoppers in the genus Gyponana.
