Hi Alin,

A fine macro of this noisy Ciccada. The colors and shadings are wonderful. Excellent details of the face, body and wings. I love the eye!

Hello Alin,
Very good picture of this cicada. Excellent POV, DOF and sharpness. I like the detail of the eye. Very good light and splendid colours.
Best regards Siggi

Hallo Alin
I really like this image, such a pity we cannot see the whole wingstructure, because the detail is striking and very prominent and clear. I also like the texture and the colours on the thorax as it displays beautifully. It has some shades of gold and silver in it. A Beautiful insect which I know makes a big noise. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Alin,
Amazing creatures these big Ciccadas. You made a very sharp close-up on the insect, showing well its grey eyes and the wonderful structured wings. I just regret that you cut a little bit of the wings.
I never have seen in natura this insect, but I hope I will one day.
I suppose they dont't make noise any more in this season.
Kind regards

Hi Alin
Excellent capture...Great detail and color...TFS

Hi alin,
your cicada shot is very outstanding. Very very sharp with full of excellent details. i like the texture of the bark that makes it so well hidden. but you make it discenred. Well composed with superbs natural colours.
