Unbelievably beautiful!!
I understood from some research on the net that for a Cicada it takes two hours to be reborn? Amazing!

That was incredible! I've never seen a cicada before, and I had no idea that they were so "earthy."

I have never seen this type of insect before.
We have lots of ladybirds at the moment.
