Metamorphosis..

…Of A Cicada Last Summer

Crawl out from underground
Crawl out from underground
Half way out of an old shell
Half way out of an old shell
Stretching out wings
Stretching out wings
Fully free
Fully free
Waiting for the wings to harden
Waiting for the wings to harden
Completely unfurled
Completely unfurled
The Emperor with his new clothes

    • I didn’t expect the critter to come out of the nymph shell the evening I found it, although I should have known that’s what happens. I spent a few of hours watching the whole process and was completely mesmerized by it. In hindsight, I really should have videotaped the whole thing. Ah well. There is always next year.
