Leaf hopper on the mirror

Last night as I was brushing my teeth in the upstairs bathroom, Steve called me from the bottom of the stairs, "Andi - come look at my bug!" He was brushing his teeth in the downstairs bathroom and found this little critter clinging to the mirror.

It's a species of Gyponana - one of the leaf hoppers found in the garden during the summer months. I've no idea why it came into the house - maybe it was clinging to the fur of one of our dogs, or hitched a ride on a shirt after one of us was working in the garden. After photographing it I took it outside. It had to hop around the kitchen for a bit before I could shoo it out the back door.
