This is such a great capture taken and posted by merelyhere.

A nymph emerging from it’s shell… the wing colors are so pretty.

Reminded me of the Cicada Invasion – Brood X, we had in our area the summer of 2004.. Only coming out every 17 years. It was amazing to see. We had so many of them. I was, admittedly, glad when they finally were gone.
