The Happiest Cicada! After possibly 17 years underground (as a GRUB) he is clearly enjoying his day in the sunshine! Perhaps he has just wooed the love of his life?

Congratulations to all the October Winners! Pretty Near ALL the Finalists deserved higher honors, IMHO.

I would rather have a butterfly or even a lady buy on my finger but I guess we have to be fair about it. It may not be the prettiest but you did get some amazing close up details. Your work ( not it) is beautiful my friend.

Yikes. I think it is staring at you. RUN! (Maybe he thinks you are the love of his life perching him on your finger with such kindness?) <--- I'd still RUN! Lol...

What a cool macro, Michelle. And what an ugly bug. So ugly it's neat!

You are brave. It could have bitten you!!

Love it!

Being a lifelong bug enthusiast, I have to share with everyone who will listen..Cicadas are BEAUTIFUL up close. They truly are! And they don't harm anyone or any THING as far as I know. It's not my hand holding him though. I was in Trenton, NJ with Bill...HE found the cicada in a bush...apparently dying. The poor bug probably had his last smile posing for me cradled in Bill's hand. Can you see his smile?

Okay, now I feel badly for what I said up there. I am not a bug gal and usually panic and run. I will now stop, look at him again really well and try to appreciate this very loved little bug.

First, If you love him, I love him. :D I trust your judgement.

He is a nice color of green. Pretty wings, like a fairy. He has wonderfully big black shiny eyes...and I am sure you made him feel safe in his final hours. May he R.I.P.. :)

Thank you for the education, Michelle. Fear stems from not understanding sometimes. I like him even more knowing he wont bite or sting.

-Laura :)

Nice!
Once again ... I have an image that could be the next chapter in a story about this little guy. Maybe we should get together and write some stories with our images!
(I still don't understand TKW day!)

We get a lot of these fellas in my neck of the woods - in fact we call them "ugly bugs"! But I've never tried to shoot one up this close - great details and clarity!
