... where it's not about the camera.
Wow, Rick, was THAT captured with your Fuji F100 ??? Amazing detail... I think amatuer entymologists call that variety Black Princes, and the Ruby Eyes are the most prized of all...
It's a Periodical Cicada, we called them 17 Year Cicadas when I was a kid. They all have red eyes and they emerge by the thousands.Here's all you ever wanted to know:http://insects.ummz.lsa.umich.edu/fauna/Michigan_Cicadas/Periodical/Index.html

OK, that's weird. Google Peridical Cicada... it's the first link (UMMZ Periodical Cicada Page)
Yes, that was shot with my new Fuji F100. All of my Fuji pocket cams have been good for macro but I think this is the best one yet. The image has been cropped also. It's 12 megapixel so there's plenty of room to crop.
Rick - Fantastic shot. Glad to see you were able to post a Cicada pic. I've had a ball over this past week shooting them. They're out in such tremendous numbers this year it's hard to believe. Check out my pics when you get a chance.www.jasonmeans.blogspot.com
You actually managed to make a Cicada look cute....which they are not. As I always say, Rick can make anyone or anything look good.
My 15 year old daughter and I are TOTALLY grossed out right now! YUCK....but good shot Rick...
I'd like him for a pal.
Rick: That is one great close-up.
The question is do I WANT to see it closer!!Great shot!
