Brown and yellow insect that secretes a foam resembling spit on plants. The adult female can be seen at my other spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/230... and the adult male at: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/239...
Unknown yellow flowering plant in chaparral area along trail.
Apparently the spit has several purposes. It hides the nymph, helps regulate temperature, keeps it moist and also deters predators. Aka Spittle Bug
Lat: 33.06, Long: -117.07
