Leaf Hopper

This is a leaf hopper, not to be confused with a dragonfly.  They are much smaller and when they land their wings fold together on their back.  Their body design is very similar to that of the dragonfly and many people confuse the two.  If you see a dragonfly you will know, they are much larger and when they land their wings stay open.  The last house I lived in, before buying this one, I could watch the entire life cycle of the dragonfly.  There were so many different colors of them as well.  They are a truly amazing creature.
