Beautiful photos, but I have to say, I hate spittle bugs. They love the wild hazelnut trees and you just know that if you walk a trail here you're going to get the bubbles on you. If you take a little stick and move the bubbles, you'll see the bug.

Did you see the bug or just it's "spittle"???
Is the "spittle" a form of offense or defense??? Nice tight foci & bokeh!

i didn't see the bug inside.. it's a tiny little nymph of a froghopper.. the spittle is like protection.. keeps them cool and moist and camouflaged.. 
and thanks
