Cicada shells

 on 


Hundreds of thousands of empty nymph cicada shells left on trees around Brisbane Waters can mean only one thing: a very noisy hot summer. At times the volume of the cicada song reaches unbearable levels. It seems this year that will mean almost all the time as I have never seen that many empty shells left behind after their molting transformation.

    I have just recently seen these at my local park..simply amazing.
    I think you have captured the eeriness of these little bug cases quite well. The contrast of the bark is very effective even on it’s own.
