Noise Maker

Macro of Cicada. This female may have chosen Wrigley's (my dog) grass garden to spend the final moments of it's life cycle after having layed it's eggs in my Maple tree. This is probably an "Annual" Cicada (Tibicen Linnei) as opposed to the "Periodical" Cicada which has a life cycle between 13 and 17 years. The dark line running from just behind the forelegs to the middle legs is a feeding tube. Which leaves me to find out what the breathing mask looking piece of equipment between and just below the eyes may be. http://www.ummz.lsa.umich.edu/magicicada/Michigan/Index.html http://www.ummz.lsa.umich.edu/magicicada/Periodical/Index.html

I thought this was a crab at first from the thumb - nice macro and a good angle too.

I like it a lot! First shot I've seen where you ventured into the other world of flowers...really neat! There's a guy here in Maryland everyone calls "Cicada Man". I think he did a special for PBS when the 17-year cicadas were last out. You might be able to find him on the web, by that name. :o)
