Malaysia, like all south-east Asian countries, has a fantastic array of beautiful cicada species.
A world traveler sent us her recent cicada photos. Here are a sample:
An amazing Tacua speciosa aka Emperor Cicada:

See all the Tacua speciosa photos.
A severely injured but persevering Dundubia vaginata:

Holy cow! I swear I thought that the top photo was of a stuffed animal at first. The cicada has an almost surreal, too perfect look & looks sort of plush in texture. I have never seen its like. What a beauty!
