Thanks arunpd! Normally, I will walk around the park, and just keep my eyes peeled at the vegetation and look for any movement, or odd colour insect e.g. red on green, orange on green etc.... this will capture my intention and I will investigate further...

Thanks Suze! Actually, there are such things as Froghoppers, I did a goggle search, and I am guessing that these are Froghoppers.....anyway, they are known to have the longest jump/body size ratio.....or so it is reported on the internet....

I was told that fleas had longest jump/body size ratio. But froghoppers are also great leapers, so maybee the record holder flea or froghopper was some kind of Michael Jordan of their species. :lol::lol:

APOLOGIES! After some further searching, I think it is a LEAFHOPPER rather than a froghopper......

See if there are similarity with this site here:
