Chasing this flighty insect around the garden was bloody hard work - managed just three shots - the first two OK but not quite there, and the third in the hardest position to reach of all (ground level with the camera resting on 2 plastic containers, the top one being an upside down plant pot) and with the impending storm on its way in causing the foliage to move in short sharp gusts of wind.

Still came out just about OK with a fair crop and some adjustments in LR. This is I think a male green leaf hopper, Cicadella viridis.

Taken on the 70D, LAOWA Venus 60mm lens, @ ISO125, f/11, 1/250sec, ringflash at -1/2EV.
