Garden Fleahopper

(Microtechnites bractatus)
Indiana, USA – September 2018

Compared to this bug, the cloverleaf on which it sits looks huge. The rounded shape and the receding wings indicate that it is a female. She was busy with her personal hygiene, after she had apparently relieved herself (yellowish drop). I feel a bit like a voyeur watching a bathroom scene.
