The comp is wonderful in this, I like how he seems to be staring you down, the dof is excellent as well. Great contrasting colors between the cicada and the bloom, this all comes together to make a great shot :)

Very cool keith. Love it, wish I was there!!!

If I could find anything to improve, on my monitor it looks a smidgen washed out or overly bright on my PC. Strange usually images look to dark end up being processed on a Mac. Strange this is the reverse. I would mask the head and darken the rest for a richer more dense image.
