Since I am having trouble getting out to roam the city and take pictures, I thought I’d return us to the upstairs subway platform at AMNH for a couple days to look at a few pieces that I haven’t yet shared with you.
A species of cicada, Magicicada spp.
as portrayed in tiles on the stairway leading down into the NYC subway stop (A-B-C)
at 81st and Central Park West. (ISO, no zoom, no flash).

This is the other image that I’ve stared at often, wondering what it represented. After I took the picture, I finally figured out what it is (well, sorta).
