Katya,

I don't know if it's rare but I'd certainly never seen anything like it before. I happened to spot it while walking home from the bus stop. As I was taking pictures, another passer-by came over to see what the fuss was about and he was also fascinated by it - took a picture with his cell phone.

His exact words were, "Aw, Sick!" I'm pretty sure that's hipster talk for "That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a while."

Cool shot. Got feel sort of sorry for the little guy.

It is amazing that those wings can fit in there. Pretty cool that you got a chance to see that.

DSK said...

Neat.

I think I felt like that a few times in my life.

I love how beautiful the wings look - transparent and silvery against the rather ugly body and shell.

cicadas have such a hard life!
