I found this little guy in my kitchen yesterday. He (she?) was even more beautiful than in this photo (or any of the photos in the gallery), and I admired him for a while before releasing him. He flew away, not gracefully or quickly, but achieving a pretty good altitude right away.
I’m trying to identify him–my first guess is that he’s some kind of leafhopper–but that’s just my uninformed suspicion. Awfully pretty, though.
