Lake Rescue: Treehopper (Smilia camelus)

This little guy might have gone unnoticed if it hadn’t been for it’s bright lime-green stripe. And for it’s small size, it required a considerable effort to rescue. Two rounds, in fact.

I rescued it once and, in attempting to fly off, it ended up in the water again.

Finally I got it onto an oar shaft. It rode around the lake on my shoulder.
