A very pleasant surprise, HP!
It is great to see you posting again after almost a year.
This mating pair of Cicadas has been brilliantly captured.
I have seen Cicadas in the hills, but this one is a totally different species. Wish we could know more about them.
Keep posting, HP; India has a poor showing on TN these days.
All the best!

That was a long gap - it's good to see you again! These cicadas are very beautiful and you have captured the moment perfectly. They are very attractive with their lovely colors and markings. Both insects are sharp and clear with excellent details. I love the vertical composition.

I have only just returned after a long time too.
Good to see you posting here again as well.
A very nice capture of these unusual Cicada, so very different to our species here in Aotearoa.
I hope you can find out what they are.
Very nice work.

I am also glad to see a posting from you again after such a long time. Just the other day I mentioned to Ram I miss the fellow Indian members on the site, and here you are back, and with such a beautiful image. The vibrant colours in this image are outstanding and very pleasing to the eye, further to that you captured a great moment in action with these two insects mating, and further to that I like the natural surrounding and the clarity of the tree trunks texture. It compliments the image well. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

I am glad to meet you here again. Pictured cicadas are really beautiful. But the fact, that I have never met any cicada at all. I like the subject at whole. They are looked on a trunk nicely. Lights, colours and details of the main subject as well as blurriness of the BG are excellent. Well done and best regards.

As I was away I could not say this to you earlier.
A superb macro of a pair of Cicadas, of a species unknown to me. The composition, sharpness and colours are excellent and the use of flash has not led to undesireable reflections.
Thanks for sharing this attractive image,
With best wishes,
