Thanks to Bill Hubick and Cathy Stragar for this identification, this cicada was lounging around my moth light in the coastal plain of Maryland a bit before 5 a.m. a few days ago. Thanks. sam Photography Information: Canon Mark II 5D, Zerene Stacker, Stackshot Sled, 65mm Canon MP-E 1-5X macro lens, Twin Macro Flash in Styrofoam Cooler, F5.0, ISO 100, Shutter Speed 200. USGSBIML Photoshopping Technique: Note that we now have added using the burn tool at 50% opacity set to shadows to clean up the halos that bleed into the black background from "hot" color sections of the picture.
