Summer's Swan Song—Act Two

One of the things I love about late summer is the loud song of the cicadas (depending on where you are, of course), sometimes in harmony with tree frogs and other night sounds. We're lucky enough to have a little house in Tarrytown, where one cicada expired and landed on our walkway. It's an exquisite corpse—and so beautiful that I put it into a jewelry box and brought it into the office, where Brendan McInerney photographed it. Brendan, a recent college grad, is more interested in fashion and event photography, but he's certainly made this gorgeous artefact of an hemiptera look ready for her closeup.
