    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.

    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.
