Awesome. It really could be an alien! I love its gritty texture.

Damn Brit

That is a good shot Morg. Just crop it a fraction on the right so that thing (whatever the cicada is standing on) goes right into the corner.

I miss the smell of cicadas in the morning.

Um, sorry, sound, not smell.

Thanks everybody!

This little guy actually let me stroke his back with my finger. Stood perfectly still... I know the FA77 is not a macro lens, but it works pretty well for that with the big frame from the K20D when I crop the original.

Gary, I agree with the cropping suggestion.

Thanks again guys and gals!

Cool shot. It looks as if it's staring at you.
