Amazing and beautiful images, as always. Thank you for sharing!

Were the cicada wings shot under UV?

Again, those are wonderful. I don't know how you would find many of the camoflaged ones.

Nope that was the true colour of the wings after ecdysis.

Mark - Some of the camouflaged creatures are found in situ by me, more are found by my guide and some are found at a light trap and then put on nearby tree trunks to illustrate camouflage, like the fulgorid hopper in this set. You can determine which is which based on the Ethical Exif in the photo. The legend which usually accompanies the photos uses emojis which run into permission errors when I try to post here, but you can see an example here in the caption: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rainforests/36768418752/in/dateposted-public/
