I was stalking a Daddy Long Legs on my patio when I spotted additional movement on his perch.
The spider had been all around the stem and leaves of this plant that I think is Melissa Balm; the debris to the the right of the Leaf-hopper is a dropped flower.
Whatever signal the Leafhopper was sending was lost on me and the spider. Maybe the signal was for the flower.

My milkweeds are currently a hotbed of candy-striped leafhopper activity.
Cool, I don’t think I’ve ever seen more than one at a time.
I thought you were bestowing a really fun name and curious me looked it up online and I see that’s its actually a real common name .. how wonderful!
Both insects’ names seem a bit made up, don’t they!
Superb shots, Ellen!
