Love the Stripes!

This leafhopper goes by many names: red-and-blue leafhopper, red-banded leafhopper, candy-striped leafhopper. (Graphocephala sp., probably G. coccinea)

Cool banner Laurie!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

This little leafhopper certainly wasn't trying to camouflage itself, and it made a splashy debut. Delightful.

Great example demonstrating that everything that grows and is colorful in the garden isn't necessarily planted Smiling . Edit to add that usually examples are more often hummingbirds and butterflies. I really like this banner!

Thank you all for the thumbs and comments on this colorful little guy. Donald, you are correct--there are amazing colors to be found in insects other than butterflies, spiders, fungi, algae, rocks, and water and ice when the light strikes it. Smiling
