Hi Roy,

Thanks for the cool photos of a Tibicen pronotalis female. (Formerly T. walkeri and formerly T. marginalis).

After studying these images closely, you seem to have done a pretty decent job of making this specimen look alive by posing it on the tree and leaf. However, I one can tell that it is newly dead by how the legs are positioned and the eyes are just starting to fade.

Also,you also state that it was found dead.

Thanks for sharing these photos.
