    • This empty shell will not rot.
      It will not be broken without touching.
      There several cicada here, but I do not yet found the empty shells of them.
      Thank you for your comment.

    • Oh! is it scary? 🙂
      The cicadas lives under the ground for several years, and the end, they are flying away. They left this shell.
      The rest of his life is a few weeks.
      But this empty shell is the symbol of the life.
      Nature is wonderful.
      But the detail of this empty shell … really scary. 😦

      • Not really scary, just a little bit. An animal that was an animal. Like clothing… I haven’t seen such a shell before.
        I love these nature photos, it’s the real wonderful life.

      • In fact, I am also a little scary kind of insect.
        But, it is so wonderful When I observed carefully.
        And, empty shell is almost like art.
        It is beautiful when it passed through the light.
