Mr. Bugman
I’m a photographer from Ecuador South America, I love taking nature pics in remote places in my country, since a couple years back I benn exploring the field of macro photography, and on a travel I found this bug that I couldn’t identify, the picture isn’t much clear, the insect was to fast to take a better pic.
I’m also sending you a pic of another bug that I never seen before, the picture quality is a little bit better.
hope you can help me out

Dear Charly,
The “chromatic bug” is a Leafhopper or Sharpshooter in the family Cicadellidae, and though we located a matching image on FlickR, it is not identified to the species level.  An image on American Insects is identified as being in the genus
Beirneola.  Your white winged insect is a Plume Moth in the family Pterophoridae.
