  2. Great Photo

    Really sharp picture. You are lucky to have found a newly emergent adult. Thanks for posting.

    Thanks Rob. Am I right in guessing that this is a Cicadas?

    Thank you Jeff. I can't put my camera down with the 105 on it. I think the neighbors think I have lost it chasing after bugs all day.
     
  6. Very cool! I love stuff like that. We're in the process of watching 11 caterpillars turn into butterflies, so I guess I'd better start shooting...half of them have already formed their chrysalids!

    Thanks Sommer. It was a lucky find. I am looking forward to seeing some of your shots.

    Thank you Gale.
     
  9. Correct!

    You should be hearing them around the yard now. Still a little early for them up here in North Carolina.

    Thanks Mark. It was getting dark and I had to use my built in flash so I guess that is why the light is so harsh. I need to figure out a way to diffuse the flash light in situations like this.
