Uh huh.. maybe that's why they're called sharp-shooters in America?

That sounds very strange Hema. Did you smell like a plant?

not this cute little bug per Se. i know that Leaf hoppers ,when they are in swarms ,they bite the life out of you. I was bitten by bugs in Florida. Florida is a bug hunter's paradise,particularly the one swamps.

Thank you Hema and Celeste. Hema, I've never known them to bite. Did you encounter one that did?

He's cute!
