The potato leafhopper (Empoasca fabae), feeds on over 100 cultivated and wild plants including alfalfa, clover, eggplants, strawberries, some garden flower varieties, potatoes, soybeans, and snap beans.

It may look cute but it's actually a pest.

It's capable of walking sideways too!

That's the size of this fella, approximately 3.5mm.

They certainly are pesky critters. You have done a great job of photographing and documenting them...
