Emerging Cicada
Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Geehi - NSW 
Posted By: Bruce Clark, 11-17-2013, 04:52 AM

One of the strangest sights of the trip was the Cicadas emerging from their nymph stage. They seem to favour car tyres as well as trees for this transition to adult hood. They remain in this highly vulnerable position for quite some time.

After emerging they cling onto the husk to dry their wings
