What’s a membracid?

Membracids are cute little treehoppers. Membracid

Although they are little, they have a very complex life. Some are social, and live in groups, and defend their young. Some are tended by ants, and have symbiotic relationships.

But, mostly, they are cute. :)

When it was time to choose a domain name here at WordPress, I wasn’t able to get some of my first choices (bug-girl or cicada), so I went with my 2nd favorite kind of insect–treehoppers.

You can read more about the life of treehoppers at Wikipedia, and some truly amazing photos can be found here and here.
