Cicada exoskeleton

267 views Nature Lover August 3, 2014 Ottawa, ON Date shot: August 3, 2014

I wasn't fortunate enough to be there when the Cicada emerged from its exoskeleton. Cicadas live underground as nymphs for most of their lives where they feed on sap from roots. When ready to come out of the ground they construct an exit tunnel. They then shed their skins on a nearby plant and emerge as adults.
