When I looked at the Buckwheat flowers, there was one small spot that appeared slightly off. It was a little too blue-green. I snapped a photo and zoomed in. I was surprised to find a face staring back at me (image 5). This nymph was 6 mm long and was just short of perfectly camouflaged. It has some brown spots and yellow eyes but is mostly white. The underside, legs and side of the head is a blue-green.
