Leafhopper

Leafhoppers are not welcome in most gardens because of the damage they can do to plants, but they are a vital food source for birds, spiders, and just about every other garden predator, so – just like the snails – as long as they don’t threaten to take over the world I’ll live with them. Here’s one making an interesting picture by contrasting its bright green self with a ripe cotoneaster berry.

  1. Those leafhoppers are so tiny. At first I thought he was sitting on an apple, but then I realised you said is was a berry. Great shot!
