365-210: Cicada

I found this little guy on our deck...

isn't he kind of cute?!



Look at how shimmery his wings are...



and that crazy pattern on his back...



He was an excellent model...


...probably because he was dead.

  2. ROFLOL!! I was going to comment that I've never seen one ALIVE...until I got to the end of your post. Actually though we usually only see their "Shells" attached to the trees, so this is still more than I am used to.

  7. SWEET shots! My boys had a friend over last summer and there was one of these {alive} on my back deck by the back door. The boy was FREAKED out and wouldn't go out the back door!
