Uh huh.. maybe that's why they're called sharp-shooters in America?
,, thinking a bit more about it Hema could they have been midges?
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?
Beautiful Cindy!! Hoppers bite!!
Thank you! I love these! This particular one has an extra set of "windows" on the wings compared to my other spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/272...
