Blue Eyed Magicicada from Villa Park IL

Paula King’s son found this cicada in Villa Park, IL. In the picture they eyes are white, but Paula observed that the eye color would actually vacillate between blue and white over the course of time. That’s an important observation.

Here’s another picture from Paula of a cicada with mustard colored eyes:

    This is a very cool contest! Whats up with those mustard eyes? AWESOME!! How many insects have such a variety of eye colors? If the USA had a national insect I would vote for the cicada.
