Leafhopper ( family Cicadellidae ) Mating?

There are lots of things to see and observe in my lil space where I planted lots of plants and edibles.  Was looking through my plants for pests and found this leaf hoppers together, either they are courting or about to mate :p  Could not resist  and I took a close up picture of them together on my cotton plant stem. Love the color of the rhubarb.  They are considered pests to my plants but I allowed them to dwell in my garden. They bred fast and in no time I see my cotton plants full of them. They are very tiny and not noticeable unless you really hunt them down.  They are great subjects for my photography lesson :)

The leafhoppers were great friends until this orange insect (not sure whether it is the baby leafhopper) came along and separated them. What a nuisance ! After a while the orange insect flew off and the two leaf hoppers continues their courting LOL! Lots to see through the close up lens and my photography lessons continues :)

love the color of the cotton plant stem...reminds me of Rhubarb

and their courtship continues now going the other direction LOL

love the shallow depth of field here

this is not picture perfect but I somehow love the background :p

Joe's Lastest Addition To His Music Studio

It is hard not to find a Midi Keyboard Controller in my friend Joe's music studio. He keeps adding music instruments and accessories to his band.  I am amazed at his craze for music instruments and accessories. I guess he spend most of his income on musical instruments.  Oh well, since his children are all married, no financial commitment , I guess he has extra for his hobbies. And one of them is music. He has a band and he performs in hotels .  He and his band are always invited to performed for private functions and he is quite popular among our age group that is those above 50's . Hubby and I love to hear him sings Elvis's songs.  And he has a fantastic voice. During one of our meet up, we used to meet up for midnight supper after his performance, I asked him where he gets his music gadgets from and he told us that he usually buy online and sometimes he gets free shipping . His lastest addition is a Midi Keyboard Controller and he got if from best midi keyboard at   and you can check out more music gadgets from their official website . We enjoyed Joe's company very much as he is a great entertainer. He is a clown at times as he makes us laugh the whole night long whenever we are with him. He talks non stop from fishing to music stuff. We love this guy to bits and we are very blessed to have him as our friend :)
