EXOSKELETON OF A NEWLY EMERGED CICADA IN GREAT FALLS VIRGINIA
An exoskeleton of a newly emerged adult cicada is left hanging on a plant in Great Falls, Virginia May 13, 2004. Starting this week across much of the eastern United States cicadas will emerge from their 17 years of sucking on tree roots underground to engage in a two-week orgy of calling, mating, laying eggs and then dying.
