[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When cicada's cry is heard, I feel the season of summer come. It is comfortable to hear the sound named "mi-n mi-n min" in the bed of the morning. The cicada is also different the cry depending on the kind. And, I also know the cicada barking "o-shin tsukutsuku".
This photograph is capturing of the cicada that was barking by the tree in the approach to a shrine when having gone to Kamakura.
As for either, it is agreeable to hear cicada's voice at the time of summer.
