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.

Just an outstanding set of pictures.

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.
