I found this Green Grocer, a type of cicada, walking about outside our house this week. These insects are capable of making a very sound noise - and a certain well known web based encyclopaedia claims that they are the loudest insects in the world. Thankfully this guy was taking a break from its ear splitting routine.
After a few shots, it became clear that the only way I was going to get a decent shot was to lie flat on my stomach in front of it!
You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
