Update on Cicadas

I discovered this tonight... A couple of empty nymphal skins from Cicada
on one of our garden trees
One of two  empty nymphal cicada skins

Its interesting to read that Cicada live under ground in the nymph stage for 6-7 years then come above ground, leave their empty nymphal skin on a tree and then have a short life as an adult living then only a few weeks.See this link for more information.
