17 years underground for 6 weeks out in the fresh air. That's the tradeoff every cicada makes in their life. We often forget that the life cycle of the cicada is both beautiful and tragic and just focus on the noise. However, natural-historian and time-lapse photographer Samuel Orr has spent the past 6 years documenting and capturing the fascinating life cycle of the Midwestern cicada.
The video is merely a preview of the hour-long documentary Orr wants to produce. To fund his dream, he has created a kick-starter in hopes of raising $20,000. If you love cicadas, time-lapse photography, and awesome views of nature - this video is for you. Check it out.
