Any thoughts about what these critters are called?

Thanks for having a look-see,

Do they usually jump when you disturb them?

No, they don't hop like leaf or plant hoppers, if that's what you mean. I do have those, too.

I haven't noticed these fellas before in my yard; I hope they don't linger long.

Thanks,
Virginia
