Cicada up close... by thewatersphotos

Cicada up close...

This Cicada was alive but very still on our carport this morning. We don't see many but do hear them. Occasionally we will find their "shells" but not a live one. It looks a little frightening up close.
WOH!!! Amazing image, he looks positively alien! Amazing detailed structure.

It does look a bit frightening. I'm glad it's a rather small insect.

It looks terrifying! They have such a strange noise but pretty much all of us associate their noise with summer & holidays I’m sure!

Beautifully close and slightly disturbing. Amazing detail!

Wow! That’s amazing! Do y’all ever use the term locust for those insects?

lol, haven't seen any around here....yet.

What a "glamour shot". A face only its mother could love. I'm impressed with the sharp detail.

Don’t think I’ve seen one that close! Great macro

Cool! I have found the "shells", but never seen the actual beast!

Creepy but gutsy... I wouldn’t get that close.

@rhoing Thanks, Thom! He seemed to be a willing participant.

@k9photo He did look imposing, but quite calm sitting on the carport and only about two inches long.

@randystreat It asked for an 8 X 10 glossy! LOL I was pleased with the detail. It sat very still.
