I used to collect cicadas in our backyard in Lubbock and keep them in a bucket until they hatched. (They may have actually been locusts, but it is about the same.) I can fully appreciate Ellie's love of the Cicada. Cool photos!

These are great pictures. Besides the content, I love the lighting. What kind of camera did you use?

Ps. What do you think of The Almost?

Nikon D-40. One of the first more affordable Digital SLR cameras. Got it at Wolf. We love it.

I am enjoying The Almost. A little "harder" rock than my usual listening tastes allow, but there's no screaming, which is a must for me.

Oh, and Amy, on the cicada/locust thing: we went to "Cicada Mania" yesterday at a Forest Preserve near here. It reminded me a lot of something that would happen in Austin, actually. (For instance, there was a guy singing folk songs about cicadas.) Anyway, one of the displays says that there are no locusts in North America anymore. These 17-year cicadas are only one kind-- there are some that come out every summer, which is probably what you played with.
