A cicada climbing out of its old shed exoskeleton and sitting there to let itself dry.

One of my favorite sounds! I think they're kind of cute, too.

Painted grasshopper, India. What colors!

The grasshopper is an insect of the suborder Caelifera in the order Orthoptera. To distinguish it from bush crickets or katydids, it is sometimes referred to as the short-horned grasshopper. Species that change colour and behaviour at high population densities are called locusts.

10/1: I'm mostly in love with the texture of this insect's carapace. It's kept from being an overbearing block of color by the small winding lines running through it, and of course the massive straight ones running down the length of it. Additionally, it's a very rich orange. It pleases my cones and rods.

I miss cicadas. When I was little I would find their shed exoskeletons everywhere, and hear the distinctive buzzing. "But that was Wisconsin. That was yesterday."- Bon Iver
