This is the year for Brood X Cicadas to arrive in the Northeast of the United States. My backyard has thousands and thousands of them in the trees, shrubs, grass and even my deck! So, I decided to use one as a photographic project. I put a quarter on the ground in front of one and waited for him to crawl near it. The cicada’s big red eyes appear to be looking at the quarter.
