In my own backyard

My hubby was chatting with one of our neighbors yesterday when they noticed a molting cicada on the fence dividing our properties. He quickly yelled at me to "grab my camera" and I was able to capture the event. Well, most of it anyway. If insects aren't really your thing, you may want to skip this post. For your viewing enjoyment...

Wow you have good timing to show up while its happening. Its actually a really pretty thing and not as gross as it would seem.
