What Big Eyes You Have!

The cicada season is past its peak, and the nights are getting cooler. So it takes these creatures quite a while in the morning to get warm and start moving, and one can approach them quite readily, and even get some dew drops into the frame.




  1. Impressive macro photos.

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cicada (certainly not this close up!) but I have heard them and long for those hot, summer nights when they are back!
