    Fascinating. I have never seen a blue-winged cicada!

  • Bette, their wings will go to bright green by the morning, this was the colour as it just emerged from its nymph form – regards John :)

    This really had me going as to what it was. I love the intricacy of the wing. Superb

  • Karen thank you for your comment – it is great being able to share the magic and wonders that we discover and then in turn be able to see things differently – through the eyes of other photographers – cheers John
