I was completely bug-eyed to see exuvia (shed skin) of cicada on my palm trees yesterday! Not just one or two, but dozens of them!

Cicada are common in Tennessee, where I am originally from, but I never expected to see these out here on the island.

Cicada are much better heard than seen. Yuck!

Hi DJ,

we used to wear these as "jewelry" when I was a kid, that is until my older sisters (unknowlingly, they say even to this day)pinned a live one on me that started crawling and freaked me out. I do like still like cicadas, but then I have always been a lover of creepie crawlies.
