Early this a.m. (pre-dawn) a young Cicada emerged
from its nymph stage body... to its adult splendor!
It all played out on one of our resurrection lilies,
which just appeared this week.
After pouring my cup of coffee and snapping these
photos... some of our neighborhood ruffians (grey squirrels)
showed up on the scene... and one of them snatched
this poor Cicada right off the petal of the lily...
Munch, munch, munch... and cicada saga came to an end!
