Agnes, this picture was taken using a sony point & shoot camera on macro mode.

Wish I have a better camera to capture images like these. :)

Great pics! This is a spittlebug in the family Machaerotidae, genus Machaerota. Don't know the species, sorry! The nymphs of species in this family construct -- and live in -- fluid-filled tubes, rather than 'regular' spittle masses
