ID: Machaerotidae(Tube spittle bug)
Came across this beauty right at the start of the trail, perched right at the edge of the split of the plant, almost missing it out for some dust stuck to it. Either because it was early in the morning or it actually wasnt too active, it hardly moved away, as in most of the encounters, and rather gave me a good amount of time to frame it as well as allowed me to get as close as possible. Intriguingly, while capturing this frame, the specimen seemed to be dropping something on its hind end, unsure if taking a dump or laying egg.
