Sharpshooter

Pawiloma victima

Notes:

Observing this bug, I noticed that some leaves were wet below. I recorded a video with the phone and in slow motion I saw a few drops passing. Then I shot many pictures with different settings and I could capture photos 4, 5 and 6. In photo 4 and 5 drop looks about the right of the image, such as a bright "spot". In photo 6 drop looks more to the center of the image. I have pictures of another variant of this bug (or very similar) but green and black striped.

not all that great with birds, but much better at IDing them than insects.

@bayucca, i know there are tons of sharpshooter species, but i'm saying usually i wouldn't even get that it was a sharpshooter. I know all i got was the overall family, but still happy for that! you are the expert that can really narrow down the the exact species ;) nice job on this one ;)

Well, Caleb, the chance is quite good you are right. There are plenty of sharpshooters around.
Just kidding...
Good job, Caleb!
