Very late posting today!
Semi is Japanese for cicada.

The summer's singer!

So what is cicada ? It's an extreme macro of something horrible. Excellent shot.

@Dawn Sutherland: They're harmless though Dawn! You've got cicadas where you live don't you?
Man, I second Veronelle. It looks monstrous, like one of those 1950 B movies.

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Thanks Luis!
There are very noisy now isn't it. Not so easy to see them in the trees.

@akarui: Very noisy indeed, although I think maybe they are starting to decline - they don't wake me so early these past few days!
Yes , I think you´re right , I´ve just realized they are almost no singing anymore...the crickets are replacing them at night , cri,cri...cri,cri...

@Hikari: They usually have their peak by mid August I think... one little step closer to autumn!
Alien!!! Honestly, the thumbnail version looked even more so …
