Flecks of brilliant gold dust this rather vocal Summer resident of Richmond, Virginia. See the CURRENT PRICE of Gold here. WOW!

Nature is full of delightful surprises

An oil painting artist must be a keen observer of color in order to produce an accurate representation of a subject. At first glance you might not notice the metallic yellow gold powdered upon this multi-colored fellow. Note: A much closer inspection of even the smallest of creatures we share our existance with can reveal amazing finds. You just have to not only look..... but SEE!

This is another bug I don't see much of where I live. We have some, but they're smaller, fewer, and therefore not as noisy.

Love the gold "dust".

Wonderful pictures... the scientific name of this cicada is Tibicen linnei Smith and Grossbeck, 1907.
