Cookoo Spit and Raindrop by Photography by Mathilde

Currently unavailable for purchase

My garden in Colerne, Wiltshire, UK

Nikon D3000 and Sigma 1:1 2.8D Macro manual lens – handheld and unedited – 205 view on 07.07.12

This froth has no connection with cuckoos

It is secreted by the immature stages of sap-sucking insects known as froghoppers, presumably as a means of protecting themselves against predators

The adult insects live openly on the plant and do not produce cuckoo spit or cause any damage
