Metamorphosis of a Locust

               I witnessed this whole scenario right in my own backyard on my Cherry Tree.  Simply fascinating!

My appreciation for the miracles seen in the insect word is somewhat limited. But you captured it well!

Very cool photos and you are so lucky to have captured this! I was hoping to be able to, but alas, I haven't seen a cicada yet!!

What a joy to have witnessed the transformation. Bonus to having captured and shared it!

I find their empty shells in our yard. I have never actually seen one emerge though. They are noisy suckers!

It would really be fascinating to see the life cycle on video. Neat pics.
