Crushin’ (on) hoppers

Working working working…the fruits of my labours look like this these days:

A bunch of beetles from Kug…SHINY!!!

I”m also trying to get some more photog practice before BugShot (I just booked my flight 10 seconds ago, WOOT!), but it’s been so gad-dang-awfully hot around here that I can hardly stand to be outside for more than a few minutes.  That said, I’m still spotting some nice little critters in my yard, and currently have a great big crush on hoppers:

 

Unknown Spittle Bug - (Cercopidae)

Metcalfa pruinosa - Citrus Flatid Planthopper
