Apparently planthoppers in the family Issidae have these insane tufts emerging from their backsides when they're nymphs. How crazy is that.

Wow—this is the only one I’ve seen of this type, which differs in coloration vs D. n. angelesia. I couldn’t get any clear photos before it took off. I stayed near this bush for awhile, hoping it might return. Nope.

The day I took these photos, I'd decided to put on my extension tubes + the Raynox DCR-250 to see how much closer I could get. I ended up with what I'm guessing is light-leaking problems that even cranking the Dehaze slider couldn't fix in some of the photos, hah.

And well, I got quite a surprise when I glanced back to this flower and immediately saw the jumper from a few minutes before hop right on it 😲
