Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Title is most appropriate for this capture. The cicada emerging from the darkness and so large in the frame takes on the frightening aspect of a monster from nightmares. Lighting and details are great on this creepy insect.

Yes. It is. Extraordinary. 8 for the sheer weirdness - I would love to see just a tiny bit more detail in the shadow areas (OK, actually, I'm not entirely sure I am being truthful there...)
