Cicada Wings
709 Views|1 Today
A set of wings dissected from the magicicadia emergence in Missouri, USA a couple years ago.  It was the very rare year when both the 13 year and the 17 year cicada emerged simultaneously.  I've kept a few specimens in storage and just got around to pinning a few for my personal collection, and removing the wings from the rest.  The wings are in various states of disrepair, nearly all of which happened naturally before I acquired them.   They were removed from the insect and laid out in my flatbed scanner.  From there, they were arranged in photoshop.  

I hear they make good model wings for faeries and the like.  Hope that someone can find a good use for them.  Enjoy.
