"Goodbye Eyes"

 
Photo 2003 Frank H Phillips, All Rights Reserved This is a meaningful photograph to me because when I shot this Cicada, it was about to expire, and even though it could no longer move, it could still follow my movements with its pupils. You can see them as the black dots under the flash reflections. This was the first time I had ever stopped to notice that bugs are watching me as much as I am watching them. I shot this at my parents' lake home in Alabama.
