DSCF8855 Cicada Exoskeleton after emergence

I'm wondering if I missed the exiting! It wasn't until I saw a video of the shedding of an exoskeleton that I learned they exit through the back. But...is that a leg I see sticking out of the crack?

Great close-up! I liked to collect these and play with them when I was a kid. LOL
I found one on my back porch the other day and it brought back a lot of memories!
