Almost...

This is a picture that is almost a bloom for Blooming Tuesday and almost a bug for Animal Wednesday. I found this empty casing of a cicada on the underside of a bud of a hosta. I thought it an unusual place for one to emerge from. Happy Blooming Tuesday to all..

This is a fun painting. From the looks of it you would think the bug was still there and not just the shell of him. Great job.

I like it - very unusual composition but natural too. Good job! I also like the almost, almost.

BT said...

That is another great painting Lisa. It really does look like the bug, not the casing.

I don't believeI have ever spied one of these cicada; at least didn't know what I was looking at if I did. Imagine that shell! Neat post.
