This is such an interesting insect and how big it is! Must be impressive to see them. Both of your pictures are good and they allow us to see the Cicada from two sides. In my country they are so small, I really would like to see once one of these big insects.
Thanks and best regards

I wish we had Cicadas here even though their sound is often deafening! Perhaps they'll arrive here as the climate changes! This is a great shot of this beautiful specimen. Great focus on the eye and very fine details and colours. It was well worth your effort! Well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Awesome shot Chris,
I love Cicadas and this is a great capture of one.
Heaps of detail,and good natural colour.
You'd definitely need that UV filter in your bright sun.
Have you noticed the big herringbone patterned scars they leave on trees when they lay their eggs.
I've seen old ones that have grown with the tree to 500cm long or more!

Interesant close-up this "chicharra" or cicada, very nice details and sharpness.
