Tibicina corsica corsica
This cicada is an endemic species of Corsica. It lives in the low shrubby formations, in low and mid-elevation areas. In singing cicadas only males have characteristic sound producing organs - tymbals - and are able to produce loud and species specific sound signals.
Hope you like it.

Superb detail of the cicada Emmanuel. Excellent sharpness and colors, perfect BG. Have a nice weekend. Jan

Superb DOF and clarity. I find cicadas intriguing; they furnish nice background sounds to nature on certain occasions.
Thanks for sharing this one.

Excellent shot - well composed, exposed and absolutely pin-sharp.
Thanks, Nigel.

It is a very primitive looking bug, very interesting indeed.
You captured nicely, and I guess those textures are not easy at all. Excellent composition, lighting and details. A fine work. Great!

Emmanuel. Me guata tu foto, Muy buen nivel de acercamiento, y muy claros todos los detalles. tu nota es muy buena. Luis52

bonjour manu
parfait,tres bon DOF et POV,netteté,details.
tout y est.

Great detail, composition and colors here. Haven't met this one yet, don't think we have them in Holland, but the kinds we do have are difficult to approach so I know how difficult it is to take such a photo, like it a lot.

Wow! This is one seriously awesome macro shot! I can't find a fault with it!

Great work, well done!


Very clear and concentrated approach on that volatile insect. Beautiful colours, details and composition. Thank you!
Best regards,

Hej Emmanuel!
Cykady tak czesto opisywane w romantycznych ksiazkach,ale ja nie wiem jaki one wydaja glos. Teraz dzieki Tobie, chociaz widze jak wyglada ten stworek.
Foto: bardzo dobrze wydzielone z tla, widoczne detale, dobra glebia ostrosci i kolory.
Pozdrawiam i gratulacje - Roma

Cher Emmanuel,
grâce à cette magnifique photo de la cigale corse j'ai découvert ton site web. T'es très doué et je trouve rien à critiquer. Je suis aussi content que tu frasse des commetaires détaillés. Bien à toi, Dietrich
