Cicada Carapace Close-up

Found this little guy (or at least what’s left of him) clinging to a blade of grass at my friend Willie’s house. Plucked the grass, made a little stand and shot it macro style…

These Cicada shells are quite common, this one is smaller than average though, measuring only 7/8″ long. Shot at home with an sb-600 shooting through white paper for the backdrop and a small ring-flash as the on axis key. Nikon D300s, Nikor 55mm Micro lens.
