I'm told this bug is a cicada. He's casting the most delicate shadow, even the tiny claws on his feet. I was convinced he was dead, then a child I was with poked him with her finger - he moved! ... hehehehe.
The creamy green veined, gauzy wings look impossibly fragile for his bulk.
The mantle around his neck reminds me of a dinosaur, it looks like it's there as a defensive mechanism, his eyes are placed at each side of his head, with a distracting decoy in the centre.
He’s lovely as long as he doesn’t land on me!
Shadow Shot Sunday is hosted by Hey Harriet. Have a look for lovely shadow shots from around the world.
