I found this insect I believe to be a treehopper, but I am not too sure.I do not have the best of cameras, but I hope you can identify this.
Signature: I like bugs
In our opinion, this looks like a Spittlebug or Froghopper in the family Cercopidae. According to BugGuide: “Spittlebug: nymphs surround themselves with a frothy mass that resembles spittle.” You may have noticed the spittle masses on plants in the area.
