Cicada



Recently molted cicada. Its wings are still drying and hardening.

great find. I haven't heard any yet here in the Northern regions of MO. My brother-in-law said he started hearing them a couple of weeks ago north of where we live, which surprised me.

I've found several cicada shells in my yard, but have seen only one live one, clinging to a day lily leaf. They are interesting creatures. Excellent photo.
