Are you sure that's not a Cicada...? Either way awesome shot! Especially with the nymphs.

Oh really? Interesting! I was like, this has got to be a Cicada, it looks just like one... but you're completely right. Looked Treehoppers up in Google Images and saw this very species. Now I know why they look so much alike; they're relatives!

Yeah, they look quite similar :D 
The first time I saw them, I mistook them for small/weird cicadas too...

Lol I don't blame you. I would have thought they were cicadas for sure.

Not long actually.  Treehoppers don't usually move around too much, especially when they're guarding their young.
