Good morning,
thanks god it's weekend - and the sun is shining ;-)
Let's go outside and enjoy Nature ...

Don't be fearful looking at my post today - this one is very silent - not so the insect who was slipping out of this skin - it makes its earshattering noise somewhere else now ;-)

This is a Cicada - Platylomia radha (Homoptera, Cicadidae) - or precise - the old skin of it.
If you are interested to see this Cicada than please have a look to one of my previous postings here.

Enjoy your weekend - and make nice pictures ...

Sabine

Liebe Sabine,

das ist wirklich eine gute Nachbarscahft: Deine Zikadenlarve hat ebenso Mantis-artige Vorderbeine wie mein Teufelchen: Ich habe dies bei Zikaden bisher nicht bemerkt. Was schneiden sie wohl damit, Wurzeln?. Deine Aufnahme wirkt übrigens so lebendig wie wenn die Nymphe noch aktiv in der Cuticula stecken würde. Du hast es eben einfach drauf, Sabine!

Ein schönes Wochenende wünscht Dir
Dieter

The empty shell looks as good as real in this picture, Sabine.
I looked at the collage of this insect through your link; it is a powerful looking noise maker you have show-cased there. I know how noisy Cicadas are; we have plenty of them in the Himalayas.
This is a great capture. Thanks for sharing it.
Regards,
Ram

Hallo Sabine,
diese Hüllen sind oft beeindruckender als die Zikaden selbst. Dies zeigst du hier eindrucksvoll
mit brillianter Schärfe und ausgezeichneter Tiefenschärfe. Eine Verlockung sich die strukturellen
Details genauer anzuschauen. Vor langer Zeit habe ich hier ein ähnliches Bild mit einer Zikadenhülle
aus Costa Rica eingestellt.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Ciao Sabine, you take a fantastic moment, wonderful macro with splendid sharpness and fine details, very interesting action, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Congratulation for this beauty!

Hello Sabide friend,
It's a fantastic picture of the outer covering of a cicada. I was impressed by the condition in which found. Here I usually see them sometimes, but are in poor condition when I find them. I think your cicadas are more careful to undress, that cicadas from Venezuela! ha ha ha:)
Good job, good light and excellent POV! ... I'm glad you have a sunny WE! here are predicting rain for two days, so I do not think I take many pictures.
TFS, regards & hugs MF!

Liebe Sabine,
Du leistest also Dieter's Teufelchen Gesellschaft..mit einer leeren Hülle!!
Sehr geschickt von Dir :-). Sehr feine Aufnahme mit bester Bildschärfe..alle Details sichtbar, irgendwie sieht sie noch so lebendig aus. Der Gast muss gerade ausgezogen sein..
Ein schönes Wochenende.
Herzlich grüsst

Hello Sabine,
A superb macro of the nymphal case of a Cicada. The DOF is just right to show all the details from a nice lateral POV.
I remember the ear-shattering noise they make at certain times of the day, especially when we were in Singapore.
Thanks and enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Ivan

Hello Sabine,
Beautiful photo of this skin. Unbelievable that a cicada was inside. Excellent sharpness, details, natural colours and POV in a very good composition.
Regards,
Peter

Hi Sabine,
solche Hüllen hatte ich im letzten Jahr im ganzen Garten verteilt! Irgendwie bin ich froh das es dieses Jahr nicht so ist aber andersherumm auch traurig, denn so kann ich den Libies nicht mehr so oft beim schlüpfen zuschauen als die Jahre zuvor!

Das Bild ist wieder einmal erste Sahne. Aber kein wunder wenn bei Euch auch endlich mal die Sonne scheint und Du mal wieder so richtig Gas geben kannst ;O)

GLG
Sascha

Hello Sabine,

another graet macrshot from you and also the collage are very good.
This one very good pov and detailed.
Sharpness are always good by you.
Fine colours.

gert

Technically excellent, isn't it amazing how they can slip out of their skin so neatly :)
Great image, well done my friend.

Hola Sabine

Pero bueno que mostruo es este. NO había visto la cigarra de esta manera, siempre de frente. Guau que foto, muy buena y macro perfecta.

pregunta, es que vais con lupa al campo, por que yo no veo nada de esto..... Felicidades por esta imagen.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hallo Sabine
wenn man es nicht weiss, glaubt man das das ein lebendiges Insekt is und nicht eine lehre Hülle, danke schöne für diesen interressante Fang, fein abgenommen, scharf und mit tollen Farben, wirklich echt sieht das aus
Grüsse Jacqueline

Hello Sabine,
this view is very sharp and and indeed full of light and brightness.
I have seen a few and you have depicted it very well with good contrast of green.
The skin was really intact and it looks like a real one with sharpness of the hairs still intact.
A nicely done.

regards,
Foozi

Hallo Sabine,
Interessanter Schuß einer Zikadehaut, die Beleuchtung zeigt sie wirklich genau gegen das grüne BG. Die Schärfe zeigt gutes Details.Lieber Grüße Siggi

Hello Sabine,
I've been cheated a few times when I've seen these empty cases that really look like a live Cikada from a distance! Your capture is excellent showing the details very clearly. A fine background that makes it stand out and well composed.
TFS and best regards, Ulla
