WOW! This is really amazing!!
how did you capture that? truly fascinating.
yes it’s horribly fascinating, isn’t it!
Your photos are fabulous! What is this insect?
It’s a cicada. Thanks!
Surreal. I love the vivid colors. Nature at its worst / best!
That reminds me of something like the Gremlin movie! Wow! A bit creepy, but awesome too!
What is that bug on top? The bottom one is a kind of beetle,isn’t it?
The bottom is the shell the cicada molted out of! So it’s really just an empty shell at this point.
That is one freaky looking bug.
wow, what a scary animal from close up and at the same time it develops to something amazing!!
I’m glad you gave some explanations in the comments, as at first it looked like a poor insect possessed by a fluorescent critter! Did you take these photos? Incredible capture!
I did Francesca- Thanks! The color on them was fascinating.
huh! just this week i saw a documentary upon their 17 years of brooding underground before taking over indiana or colorado or wherever it is/was they did…. oh, huh! i was also stunned by people’s ease around them! i don’t know what i’d do…
but VERY interesting b&a, i agree…..
i love the transparancy of their wings, by the way.
by the (other) way..; is this a new lay out, because it is airy! i love it!!
Thanks Nadine! It is a new layout! I thought the same thing- crisp and smooth and open! I’ve never understood the 17 year thing. There must be so many of them that some hatch each year after being underground for 17 years?
Oh my stars and moons….
