I find it enormously distracting when entire images (or entire posts) are quoted so I'm glad it stopped working for a while !
I like the quotes, and including the images. I don't like having to go back and see what the replier was talking about. It's right there in the quote.
Fabulous photo! Wonderful sharpness on the cicada. I'm jealous. I can't get the dead ones on the ground that sharp!This is not the big year here, but a few Locust are around, that as a kid, we called "Jar Flies". Went looking for an empty shell, this morning, but only spotted this one as it flew by me, and landed well above my head.
