Cicada Exoskeleton by grannysue

Cicada Exoskeleton

I was playing with some macro filters that I purchased and tryed them out on this Cicada Exoskeleton. Notice his chin whiskers, they look like a goatee. It was hanging onto some loose bark on one of my Crepe Myrtle Trees. It would at least be still, live bugs kept moving around. Let me know what you think. I only paid $7 for a partial set in a case and some other filters (for my husband's camera), so I am not out much money on this experiment.

Thank you for all your wonderful comments and favs on my baby Western Kingbirds. I apprecate them very much!

i have to say your photo is so good that it actually is giving a bit of the creeps. I am not a fan of large bugs, crickets, and such.
