What a strange organism. Presumably the head is at camera right? Great macro.

Hello Gerson,
What an incredible insect (cikada?)you've captured here. Excellent depth of focus showing all details clearly. Great composition and thanks for showing such an interesting species.
Regards, Ulla

Hello Gerson,
What a nice little monster you show us today..amzing creature. Very sharp and excellent picture; I just wonder about the size. And have you found it in the rain-forest?
Happy to see a Gerson-picture again after a break:-)
Best regards

Hello Gerson!
Species presented on your photo probably belongs to genus Bocydium, easy to recognize thanks to very characteristic spines on thorax.
Best greetings,

Hello Gerson !
This is probab ly the strangest insect I have ever seen ! I love his shape, it's so unusual ! Excellent details, even the littlehairs are sharp. I also like the vivd green colors, the composition and the blurred BG. Very well done !

You have captured such an interesting, unique and weird looking creature! lucky you.. and this guy must have been pretty small.. good eye!

I would really wanna know what this guy is, and its name! If only u had some notes for us.

But the sharpness is incredible here as well as the DOP and color. Very rich green in contrast to the very black black.

i'm guessing its devouring some other insect, and is that another of its kind underneath of the left?

Awesome job!

Olá Gerson

Cyphonia clavata, close to Bocydium ..
very common here in Panama

Belíssima cigarrinha, Gerson!!
Uma mini-escultura viva, não é mesmo?
Esta cigarrinha é da família Membracidae, são facilmente reconhecíveis pelo desenvolvimento do pronoto (placa endurecida do protórax (que é o segmento anterior dos três segmentos torácicos dos insetos).
Que alegria senti ao vê-la, muito obrigada!

Salut Gerson
Il est facinant cet insecte au allure d'un extra terrestre .Ça ne doit pas être drole dans un sac de couchage.
La netteté et les couleurs sont ravisants.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Gerson,
this one really looks strange, somehow it rimeinds me off an ant and yet it has wings. You captured it very well, the details are very sharp and the POV allows a good look at this strang insect. Very nice composition also, the slight diagonal and the wonderful neutral BG work very well.
