Insect Destroyers Entomophthorales
Shown in photo is an infected Homalodisca vitripennis - Glassy-winged Sharpshooter
Most species of the Entomophthorales produce ballistic asexual spores that are forcibly discharged. When not landing on a suitable host, these spores can germinate to make one of several alternate spore forms, including a smaller version of the original spore, or (in some species) an adhesive spore elevated on a very slender conidiophore called a capilliconidiophore.

Wow you captured some very sweet photos here, very sharp and detailed. I have some very strange creatures that I photographed a while back and will post them later on when im home. I have no idea what they are , perhaps you might know if you see them. Great perspective on your shots as well. Gotta love macro. Regards…Mike.

Thank you!! I may know some or can help you learn what they are.
You could have a look at https://www.inaturalist.org/ and post your insect images there to get identification help and it helps science collect data on all the different species. You can be a citizen scientist and enjoy your macro photography too.
Nice assortment of shots
