Author's notes

Very pretty and yet weird looking insect. I was too close to get a good pic - and when I moved back I couldn't see it anymore!

Ahh.. well there were cicadas calling a little further down the path. So that would explain it! Its been over 30 years since I've seen one. Too focused on birds!
