I have the same bugs and they are not "cottony cushion scale", not even close.

I don't have a good camera, but I will e-mail you the pictures I have.  The bugs have wings and fly.  They are light bron with a lighter strip from the bottom (where the feet are) to the tip of the "peak", this is on the side of the bug, in the middle.  They are sectionalized.  They stand up and walk on tiny legs.

I have really good photos of a bug that looks exactly like this. I am pretty sure it is a planthopper. google image search

I have a bug like this in my garden on tiger lilies and Jack-in-the-pulpit. I think it is a leaf hopper nymph.  I've also seen then without the white fuzzy appendages.  Check this out   http://bugguide.net/node/view/537480    Or google images of leafhopper nymphs.
