Semi is Japanese for cicada.

@Veronelle: Merci Veronelle!

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Excellent composition. Like the contrast between grey concrete and colorful background. And of course the 2 cicadas on each round hole.

Damon Schreiber from Toronto, Canada

Really nice composition. So good of the semi to cooperate with this positioning. Today in Toronto I can hear lots of them, but that's fairly unusual here.

@Damon Schreiber: Cheers Damon. What's the year cycle for cicadas in Toronto?

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan
