With the large number of cicadas expected this summer, here is the face of the enemy!

Amazing insects. I can never get a good shot because they are way up in the trees.

This one broke out of his cocoon and was drying his wings on top of a garbage can. He was a captive audience!

I find that the best way to photograph a Cicada is: find a dead one, prop him up on his legs and fire away. No one can tell the diff.
