Colorful insects capture my attention as much as beautiful sunrises and sunsets do. 
When this Scaralis neotropicalis arrived on my Ecuador doorstep, I was thrilled to have time for a photo. They are often mistaken for cicadas. Both insects are in the order Hemiptera, called "true bugs." The Scaralis neotropicalis, though, is in the family Fulgoridae, called planthoppers.

The utilitarian saddle indicates the role of this worker in Puerto López, Ecuador. Days likely include walks through forests, collecting raw materials with a rider. Bamboo and toquilla straw are the most common daily forest hauls in this area. 
Did you know toquilla straw is used to make “Panama hats,” which are actually made in Ecuador?

Where are your roses grown? Ecuador is the third largest flower exporter in the world. 75% of Ecuadorian flower exports are roses. #rose #allyouneedisecuador
