Stranger things: Treehopper

Here’s a shot from the close-up meadow series I did for the Darien Land Trust five years ago. I came across many strange things during my time in the meadows that summer. It’s amazing what you find when you tune out everything except your immediate surroundings.

Treehoppers, not to be confused with planthoppers, are often called “thorn bugs” because of their appearance.

Here is a link to more information about treehoppers.

In case you’re interested, here’s what a planthopper, not to be confused with treehopper, looks like.

Here is the latest in a series of close-up (macro) photographs I took last summer while tromping through the meadow properties of the Darien Land Trust. From July 24 to Aug. 31, I’ll post a different close-up meadow photograph on this site.

Here’s more background on the project.
