Cicadas

I wanted to get back into drawing again so I wanted subjects to draw that were not from photographs or the internet. I found a shop on etsy that made lovely pieces using various insects. From lockets with butterfly wings to mounted exotic beetles. She is one of the few sellers that sell insects that are ready to mount yourself so I decided to get a few cicadas. These are two I purchased but I have a feeling there will be more. Now I just have to figure out how to handle and store these guys without breaking their fragile bodies;o;
