...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


neon bugs

Sometimes all it takes is a brightly colored
unexpected something
to bring a smile...

like this electric blue-purple dragonfly

who apparently enjoys sage

or this neon pink-blue leafhopper (apparently called the candy-striped leafhopper)
(check out those neon-yellow legs!)

who also was visiting our herbs,
as you can see here on our basil...

They're beautiful little bugs!

 But after reading a little about them I guess sometimes they might eat the sap
from leaves we don't want them to eat, which wouldn't bring a smile for sure.

But since this is the only one I've ever seen, I guess we don't have a leafhopper problem.
