Jiminy Cricket, it's a Cicada
Commonly known as crickets, although not actually so, this little fella sat on my hand in the car in a nearby town a few days ago, then wandered up my shirt front and into my hair, where I forgot about it, until the tickling down my shirt front, reminded me of the young cicada...it ended up on my runner beans a few kilometres away. It was the smallest cicada I'd ever seen, only about 10mm in length, they are normally twice that size which is why I think this one was just a baby.
