I just posted some images...
of one of these hoppers. Nice work! For some reason, I had a hard time focusing on this critter. I took a dozen shots of it and only two came out. Could have been the rather large carpenter ants crawling up my legs while I was trying to take the pics though :^)

I saw yours and...
almost didn't want to submit mine... :)

I am glad I am not the only one who gets it! Nobody understands why I go out crawling through the woods and swamp on days with ~100 heat index with my hands full of sweat-covered pricey equipment fighting the briar patches and thickets while swatting away the mosquitoes and ants and ducking the wasp all to get a picture of a bug... The more I think about it, the more I don't understand it either... ;)
