    Emerging Cicada

    This first image is of the cicada as the shedding of the old shell has just begun



    Here he/she is coming out of the shell



    After coming out of old shell he/she is letting the warm sun dry itself out so it can fly away

    Thanks all for commenting. I've seen them in the process of shedding their skin a few times but didn't see any this past summer season. Saw many Cicadas but didn't catch any in this stage.

    Your eye/brain is the difference between
    a photograph and a picture, not the camera.

    Thanks Joel. It's much appreciated. I have gotten into the practice during the summer months of keeping my camera ready and not too far away whenever I'm doing yard work.
