Cicada Grimace

Cicadas are no stranger to Ugly Overload, but I love this angle. You can see the split back of the juvenile's exoskeleton, and the remnants of its grimace as its adult form tries to pull itself loose of its former shell. The night is about to become alive with its incessant trilling.

Thanks for the cicada, Kitty.
