I found this critter last night around 8:15 PM local time while I was at a ball game.
I know it's some type of cicada, just not sure which variety. Other than a small crop, this is straight out the camera using the super-macro mode function.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for all the positive response, I'm glad you liked this shot. When I first saw him, I thought he was dead, he was on his back and his legs were crossed, but when I turned him over to try and get some photos of his wing details, he stood right up.
