Macro Monday – Green leafhopper (Cicadella viridis)

It is enough to look closely around us and we will certainly notice a lot of insects. I have shown you several times insects that I found in my area. Today I will show you again a small insect, Green leafhopper. The leafhopper is the common name for any species from the family Cicadellidae. This is a plant feeder that suck plant sap from grass, shrubs, or trees less than 8 mm in length. Adult leafhopper is known for very long jumps, capable of jumping from 60 to 65 centimeters!

I share this post with my Macro Monday Challenge.
