Nature's Place

Where’s that ant going?


That’s not an ant, that’s a tree hopper. I believe, could be wrong. Best to get to the end of the need to believe anything at all. Sharpen the will, oh well.

And he’s going away to who knows where. I know, because I caught him and I let him go. He went to where all tree hoppers go, the garden. To do what tree hoppers do, survive as long as possible, and make little tree hoppers.

Anyway, it’s best not to hold on to anything that passes. If it can be helped.

And now he’s coming again, can’t predict ‘em. Not me anyway.

    Hi Mark, Thanks for your comment on my post. I have left a reply there. You have some really nice photos on your site. Please could you let me know what set up you use to get them?

      Hi Tom, I think I may have said what I use in reply to a comment you made on my other blog at but I’ll give you the rundown at your blog.

    Not a treehopper, but close – a planthopper, maybe in the family Delphacidae.

      Thanks Ted, they are big hoppers. Their sideways and backwards walking are peculiar and the jump is lightning fast.
