Observation - Leaf Hopper, on lens hood, Sandy Lodge, 2011-05-09 001 - UK and Ireland. Description: This tiny insect is sitting on the edge of my lens hood; that gives you an idea of how small it is. That's why the photos aren't as good as I'd like, though considering the scale, maybe they're not so bad... I thought it looked a bit like a leaf hopper,

I thought it looked a bit like a leaf hopper, but I really don't know what it is.

Second thought - it's speckled appearance makes me wonder if it's a proto-speckled bush cricket.
