Small Wonders

 For many years I've tried and failed to capture images of Blue Leafhoppers-a leaping insect that sucks plant juices. This afternoon I discovered a bounty of them while visiting a nearby field of common milkweed.  There are more than 2,500 species of leafhoppers in North America and more than 15,000 worldwide. These amazing insects are incredibly small- I could easily fit several of them on my pinky fingernail and when they hand on clothing, they're so tiny that they resemble a fleck of smoky blue ash.

I always feel much awe and wonder when I spend time with insects. They keep their secrets so well.
