Last Sunday, I took a brief stroll around White Park in the First Ward. Thought I'd find some mushrooms to photograph, but I was disappointed. I did got off this one shot of something strange sitting on a burdock burr.
It's kind of hard to see, but this "thing" has legs. I posted the photo on Google+, guessing that it might be some sort of leafhopper. By the end of the day, another person on the Macro Photography group that I haunt had identified it: meet Helia bimaculata, the Two-spotted Locust Treehopper.
