Maybe you should get a second opinion as I'm no expert! :)

Shame on me, I think you are right. I am gonna fix it. Thank you, Karen.

Pretty sure this is a small cicada as it has 3 ocelli not 2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicada

Hi Karen, it was about 1 cm long - huge for a hopper...:-) . The cicada look is because of the transparent wings, I think.

Very nice!
It looks a lot like a cicada. How big was it?
