Cicada

Taking some contemplative time on the deck this a.m., I noted a large black-and-green cicada on the sunshade umbrella. Its colorations made it look like some sort of “U.S. Army-issued” bug, but the peace and beauty that its slow stroll up the umbrella brought to me was the true opposite of any defensive or violent human tendencies.
