Cicada Wing, 10x Objective

(Amphipsalta zelandica)


Bugs are beautiful, especially close up! This cicada flew into my room, got lost somewhere in my clothes rack, making an occasional clicking sound. Unfortunately I wasn't able to locate the poor thing until I found it dead. Most cicadas only live a couple weeks in adult form, having spent years underground as a nymph. This one lives on in this microphotograph!


This is a composite of 10+ images captured with an OMAX microscope, focus-stacked and stitched together.


All indicated sizes are printed on a Premium 255gsm Metallic Gilcee paper unless clearly labelled "POSTER". See "Papers" on the right for more info.

  • My microphotographs are printed and shipped from carefully selected art-print shops in NZ and around the world (for international customers). 

    Please be sure to select the correct size option for shipping at checkout - this should correspond to the largest size in your cart.

    Posters are usually produced by a different print shop. If ordering both prints and posters, please select the shipping option for the largest print in your cart. Please be aware that these items may arrive at different times.

    International customers: Please note that I aim to find the best equivalent to the paper I print on here in NZ. Brand and paper weight (gsm) may vary depending on your local print-shop's inventory. I will be in touch if there is a significant difference.
