Horned treehopper by dllavaneras Horned treehopper by dllavaneras
This is one of the most awesome (and biggest) leafhoppers (Homoptera: Membracidae) I've seen. Sure, I've seen stranger looking ones, but this one was particularly cooperative when it came to taking pics.

Hi, thank you for your awesome picture! I'm falling in love with Membracidae when I saw this little insect at television... I've made this painting with your picture, I would like to offer this for you... I hope you like it :) : [link]

Interesting. In this photo it reminds the observer of a cicada!

They're quite interesting, this group. The pronotal extensions are astonishing.

You are an entomologist, right? I have to buy a macro capable of what yours does. While I am not a specialist in the invertebrate world, closeup photos of insects, arachnids, millipides and others fascinate me.

That's great! I'm glad you like the invertebrate world. I use a 100mm macro lens for my shots, a fantastic lens. And yes, I'm an entomologist. :)
