This brings back some unpleasant memories of a year in which the 17 year cycle went wild and there were cicadas all over everything. Nice capture.

Well spotted, Yvonne. After all those years spent underground the adult must be so happy to escape, shed it's casing and fly.
The bark is well captured too and makes an interesting backdrop.
