As summer retreats the songs of the local cicada population is ebbing. This is of the distinctive green cicada kihikihi wawa (or Amphipsalta zealandica) here. The wings are blurred as the insect is in mid-song.
They are also eaten by one of the local cats, who doesn’t seem to mind the crunchy sound they make.
I’m going off the grid for the next couple of weeks also, as I’m going to back in China on Sunday. It’s another elephant conservation project.Tags: cicada, Friday Photo, insect, macro
