Have always been wondering what this spit thing all around on the bushes, generally near the joint of the branches or leaves. Unable to get an answer (and never realizing about Google'ing it), I stopped taking pictures and perhaps started deleting whatever I had.
Then few days back, I came across DesiTraveller's blog post on something called Spittle Bug! Woot! It's something like a larvae secreting some foam (or spitting) around it as a protective cover. To know more about these Cercopidae Family bugs, you should visit here.
