Macro Monday - Cicada

 While i was out on the range over the weekend
I took advantage of all the little
interesting things one finds in the bush
especially for Macro Monday!

I didn't have my Canon 500D with me,
just my iphone 4!
I thought how hard it was to get close up shots with my digi camera,
imagine how hard its going to be with my iphone!
and it was totally hard to get clear Macro Shots!

So I went to the Itunes Apps
and put in Macro Camera in the search
and it came up with a 32X Camera App!!
Yay!
And its perfect!
I can get closer with my iphone than what i can with the Macro Setting on my Camera!!!

So here is the Cicada Shell I found.
They make the most noise these creatures
and they shed their shells regularly leaving them clinging onto
branches.....


Here is what he normally looks like!
The high pitched mating call they make can reach up to 120 decibels!!!

(I found this photo at Howstuffwords)

I haven't heard any in my 'neck of the woods' yet...the old wives' tale says that when they sing...rain is coming soon.


Winter Past is my link to Macro Monday. Do stop by when you get a chance. I'd love your company. Have a great week.
