I took these pictures a few years ago when the cicadas were here. They are such interesting insects. They live underground from 2 to 17 years depending on the species. When they come out of the ground they shed their exoskeleton before beginning their adult life. I was very excited to be able to get a picture of one right after it came out of the exoskeleton.
Some of you have already seen the pictures but I thought I would share them again. I am still excited about getting that one picture. 🙂
