We have these flying insects eating our plants in the garden. They are very fast and observant of you trying to get near it.
We believe your Leafhopper is a Sharpshooter in the tribe Proconiini based on images posted to BugGuide. Sharpshooters have excellent eyesight and they easily avoid humans by quickly moving to the other side of a twig or branch where they are feeding.
