Its a flying bug. If it sees you move close it will to the opposite side. I found one trying to eat my next ice cream leaf.. Lil guy flew off.. Here is the Spanish Dagger where they are all over the leaves.

Here is a smashed one on the Yucca Rostrata slightly elongated.. :^)

I think it is called a sharpshooter--I have seen them on my bananas squirting out juice as fast as the could process it.
