Cool bugs!

We saw this cool bug on our Sunflower leaf the other day. I got this cool up close photo of it, but haven't a CLUE what this bug is! I have never seen a bug that is PINK before! :D

So, can you identify this bug for us??

Edited to add: Apparently it's a leaf hopper! It is attracted to sap. While we were at the trailer, someone or something snapped the head off one of our budding sunflowers (that the kids planted, how annoying and sad for them!). The result is a lot of sap... which brought on the ants you see at the bottom of the photo, and according to Wikipedia the leaf hoppers also enjoy some good sap!!
