Froghopper nymph

Sucking at a bindweed stem

Sucking at a bindweed stem

This weird little creature is the nymph of a cuckoo spit froghopper.

It’s crawled out of its froth and is clinging to a stem of bindweed wound up a stalk of lemon mint.

I wasn’t looking for it; my attention was drawn because the lemon mint was covered in black aphids which I wanted to put under the microscope.

The froghopper nymph was a bonus.
