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.

  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!
