Here's Looking at Ya
This cicada decided to contently pose on the side of my deck rail one afternoon this summer (2015). He (or she) was pretty cool headed, staying there long enough to allow me to go into the house, grab my camera, mount the right macro lens, mount my flash and DIY flash diffuser and return for taking between 20 and 30 hand-held flash photos. The flash diffuser was no more than 1 foot distant from him, yet he hardly moved. I particularly like this composition with the eye detail (click to a larger view to see) as well as the imposing/towering perspective.
