What are these???
That is cool. We find the cicada shells everywhere around our house, but are yet to watch one emerge.Thanks!
It's a cicada molting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicada.
What a great series of photos, Happy WW!!
Wow, you witnessed that? Lucky! That is a bit...icky, but beautiful at the same time! I've never watched them molt too though I see the 'skin' everywhere.
EWWWWWW! LOL! Actually, very cool photos.~Heather
wow, amazing!! ugly bugs I bet up close.
Yikes. I prefer to molt in private, well away from the WW paparazzi.
Of the millions and millions of cicada shells I've seen in my life (give or take a few), I've never seen one actualy molt. Cool capture.
Oooh, lovely! What a rare find.
Wow I was wondering if it was a Cicada. Great photos!
Definitely not a bug fan...but looks like you were in the right place at the right time.
Cool! shots youve got.
I used to find those "Shells" everywhere when I was a kid.I have never seen a cicada actually molt before.NEAT!Thank you so much for sharing!Happy WW!

Kinda gross, but amazing too. So great that you were able to see it happen.

We have the cicada killer wasps in our yard and driveway. They kept getting worse each year and we had to spray as our 3 year old started getting scared. They are better this summer, but they are big and look very mean. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicada_killer_wasp
Proof that there is some very weird animals out there.
Wow! Isn't that amazing!
I couldn't figure out what it was, either!Not attractive! :-)Thanks for stopping by.
wow ... lucky you, great catch!thanks for posting!thanks, too, for dropping by! :)
Neat...we had cicadas a few years ago on the East Coast but I have never seen one molt, what a treat to see this science phenomenon up close.
Can you say piggy-back rides? :D
Those are kinda creepy!
Wow, in the right place at the right time.
seriously the grossest thing I have seen yet. Lost my lunch.
Eeeeeewwwww! Things like that creepme out and I had to scroll down to get the pics out of my sight, lol.
Thanks for letting me know about your pictures! Emme and I looked at them and discussed it! Last year we went on a cicada hunt and she was the first of us to find one who had just come out of his shell! It was just amazing!Sherry http://educatingemme.blogspot.com
