I Was Wrong

Last Thursday, just before the snow hit, I found only one Oak Treehopper on the branch where I had been watching them for two months.  I brought her inside for photos - see Nov. 3 post - and wrote her obituary.  Yesterday afternoon, in a bitter cold wind, I took another look at that branch and here was another treehopper.  A little smaller than the one I photographed Thursday, this one was undoubtedly one of the progeny, probably wondering where all the others went.  I brought this one inside for one last photo session, then returned it.  I'd love to be able to track these to their winter destinations.
I'm pretty sure this will be the last post of Oak Treehoppers this year.
