Welcome Back Treehoppers

My story about Plant Propagation and Propaganda is still under development, but on my way to a local coffee shop at daybreak, I decided to explore the low-hanging branches of a California Black Oak in my driveway.  I was delighted to find a gathering of young Oak Treehoppers which I've found in September for the past three years.  I don't know if they've emerged early or if I'm just more attuned to them.  I'm not gathering statistics but enjoying their presence.  No adults in this morning's group.  Now I'll be watching daily.  Click on this photo for a closer look.  Better yet, visit the Mainstreet Artist's Gallery in Quincy where you can buy my blank greeting cards with photos of this remarkable bug.
