Saliva in bush and grass?

image

You may see it where twigs meet or between two blades of grass, however it’s there in undisturbed grass or bush.

Who’s saliva?

image

Oops, a butt.. then I notice it’s covered with bubbles again. How did it do it?

image

I disturb it to move to a fresh spot, and after 5minutes

image

Mmm, so this is him

image

With such a big smile, what’s his name and why does he cover himself with bubbles?
What does he eat, how does he defend himself and who eats him!

It’s called a spittle bug. google for more info
