Ghostly Rockets

These white, woolly-looking rocket ships with fluffy boosters are planthopper larvae. I found them on my Virginia creeper after another period of rain and swampy, humid conditions.

This one fell onto the deck, so you can appreciate how small it is next to a nailhead. I tried to nudge it onto a stick and it rocketed away like a flea would.
