Cool - done with a K7?

btw, it's a cicada, not a locust (sorry, can't help myself, I'm an entomologist...)

What's the actual elapsed time?

Here's a non messed up one. Yes, this was taken with a K7, but using the time-lapse mode. Shame it stops at 99 images, I would love to retain this detail (or get more) yet be able to watch the wings pump up.

Wow, that camera has all the bells and whistles, doesn't it? I assume (perhaps wrongly) that you can set the interval, what were you using? It worked very well! Fascinating process, I imagine it must feel good to get out of that old skin.

One picture every 50 seconds, 5 second exposures at 100 ISO, I think it was f6.3

So this was over roughly an hour and a half.
