I always wonder how do they get their feet out!?
Very nicely shot, and yes, I have to say "eeeeew"!!
Wonderfully creepy shot, Jack.
Nice close up of this cast skin. v
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!

Excellent detail! V
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.
Terrific job Jack - it's fascinating to see.
OMG!! Now this is something you don't see everyday! Outstanding shot! Thumbs up!
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!
