Monomad: Cute Little Dwarf

in Black And White4 months ago

I saw a dwarf yesterday, but he was not a real dwarf. By dwarf here, I mean the horned treehopper. He's so tiny and very shy, but it could be because he's afraid of me. Look at that! This little dwarf is so cute. 😁 😂

Several times, he tried to hide by sneaking under the stem where he was perched. It looks like he's playing hide and seek with me. But no matter how much he tried to hide, he still couldn't escape my phone's camera.

Well, I'll be submitting these images as my entry for the #monomad challenge hosted and curated by @monochromes.

The texture of the branch looks like a bunch of tiny little spiders. Here I have a similar leaf hopper called a buffalo leaf hopper that is pretty large and green.

At first glance it looks like that. They are hairs that cover the stem of a plant that resembles cassava. I don't know the name of the plant. A buffalo leafhopper? I tried to imagine how big the planthopper was. It must be really huge. 😁

What an interesting little creature, you caught some very delicate details well done!

Thank you 😊

I am really impressed by the level of detail achieved with your external macro lens and your phone camera. And then to move those photos to B&W and preserve the nice magic, it's a superb job. Congratulations!

Thanks for the nice comment, buddy.
