Cool! I've seen darters emerging, but never a cicada ;-) Interesting to see the beast together with its larvae shell.
Clean capture, DOF seems rather shallow (the wings seem to be slipping a fraction), but the background is clean and setting it off nicely.

Bravo ! Une belle macro d'un moment magique !
Welcome to TN Jean
very intresting 1st post, very well seen.
A few more details about both the cicada and how you took the shot would be nice to see.Here on TN the notes are as important as the the image, have a look around and you will soon find some examples to give you food for thought.

Nice note, And I love La Fontaine story of the shoemaker and the money lender.
This picture is lovely, I would just crop most of the FG below the bug off. This will enhance your compo a lot

I just started to learn about this insect. Because they be in my back yard. When I be watering my plants they will come out and fly into something. And it will freak me out. But i wanna kno' what the hell is a Cicada before it comes out the back of whatever that creature is called! YUCK!!!!! so gross. Why does this happen the way it does, instead of building a cacoon like a catapillar does when it's gonna change into a butterfly.
