A bug ID this time...

Again, no picture yet ...
Bright green little suckers, maybe .25-.50 of an inch long. Their wings are folded upward (like a lacewing) and are not against the body like a fly or most bees. The closest I can come is a buffalo tree hopper, but unless they are young ones and will change considerably when they get to be adults, then that's not it. They do fly, sorta. They'll hop off a plant and then fly their way to another (fast little suckers, I was trying to catch one!)

Darnit, no - my critters are not so grasshopper like. Take away the long antennae, the creepy hoppy back legs and hump up the back more. I'll try to get one to sit still long enough for a photo opp.
Thank you, LeeAnne

It sounds like some kind of Treehopper, there are others besides the Buffalo you mentioned.

Actually, I've discovered that it is a 'small green leafhopper'
Not really scientific I know: http://home.att.net/~larvalbugbio/homoptera.html 2nd picture down on the right side of page, 'small green leafhopper on prickly pear cactus pad'
I'll have to look in my bug book again, I don't see how I could have missed it, hmmm.
