Cicada, Cicada, Cicada

            According to various sources, there are over 3000 species of Cicada's in the world. I watched one come out of it's shell many years ago. If I had been more patient this morning, and if there were a few thousand less mosquitoes around, I could have watched this one come out. As it was, I saw it emerging and thought, mistakenly, that it had got stuck and died as it did not move when I touched it. However, I did go back a few minutes later just to check and found that it had emerged and was drying before taking off to look for a mate. These photos will have to do this time.
