I always wonder how do they get their feet out!?

Neat shot Jack! As I'm nearly phobic when it comes to insects, my first experience with a cicada husk is burned into my memory!

It goes look like a cast off suit of armor! Great shot!

They appear all over during this time, don't they? Excellent detail.

Nice shot. Ours have been very active also. My daughter goes out and brings back handfuls of these. Well photographed.

Great shot Jack. It's fascinating to sit and watch the whole skin shedding.

It is amazing that they evolve and leave behind what looks like the entire outer body!
