Insect ID question

Something has been leaving what looks like spit,(possibly eggs)on some of my plants.
I was taking some off with a twig and this little insect was there.The pictures aren't very clear,but it's all I could do with my self-focusing camera phone.Does anyone know what this is and is this guy doing it and more important,is it harmful to plants?
I think I encountered this stuff in fields at the tops of tall grass and wondered but never found out the cause. Thanks,Brady
