Cicadas

10 Aug

A week ago or so, I found a cicada floating in the goats’ water tubs.  I rescued it, and then we had a great photo shoot.  Well, I had a great photo shoot.  It was just trying to recover from nearly drowning.

A few days later, I discovered an exoskeleton.  Right beside it was the former resident.

What  pretty thing!

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

Scary Monster

21 Jul

When I went out to do my morning chores the other day, I was greeted by a very scary scene.

Not Cinnamon waiting at the gate.  That’s pretty normal, and she’s not at all scary.  Take a closer look.

It was a cicada.

Well, it was the exoskeleton of a cicada.

You can see where the back split to let the bug out.

Pretty scary looking monster when you see it up close!
