The more I do this, the more I realize I need to learn how to take better photos.
This pretty blue leafhopper was seen in the edible garden section of the NHM Nature Gardens.
This is the largest leaf-footed bug I've ever found, so the name "giant leaf footed bug" is very fitting. I tried to pick it up with a leaf and it released a clear liquid from its abdomen and flew away.
Hemiptera /hɛˈmɪptərə/ is an order of insects most often known as the true bugs (cf. bug), comprising around 50,000–80,000 species of cicadas, aphids, planthoppers, leafhoppers, shield bugs, and others. They range in size from 1 mm (0.04 in) to around 15 cm (6 in), and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. Sometimes, the name true bugs is applied more narrowly still to insects of the suborder Heteroptera only.
