andrew and the cicada


meet andrew. he likes bugs. likes them so much that he's been working on a phd in entomology. he found this little guy shedding his old skin on the morning of his brother's wedding (the wedding which i was involved in back in pennsylvania... it's been a busy summer, try and keep up) and decided to let it crawl around on his shoulder - eventually leading to the bug reaching his face (andrew says it's because they try and reach the highest point of whatever they are crawling on). hope you aren't too squeamish!

thanks for the comments! Not sure if they bite, Andrew didn't get any bites.

Perfect light, perfect color, and you caught such a great expression on his face. Andrew's, too!
