I watched this little cicada break out of its shell, it was such a struggle. Here it is with its wings out but still wet and slowing unfolding, it was pushing so hard to get out of its shell, its legs outstretched with a final push.

My photographs concentrate on the light, lines, colour, shape and form found in nature…… from bushland to beaches, even my own backyard.

    WOW! You’re so lucky! I’ve never actually had the opportunity to witness this happening.
    I was just explaining this process to my boys on the weekend after we found a cicada shell (always very exciting). Reilly (who’s 4) is scared of the shells. He thinks they’re going to hurt him despite all my explanations otherwise.

    This is a real treat :)

  • Thanks again Rosemary. My son was just as excited as I was to see this, he actually spotted it first. I’ve never seen one come out of it’s shell before in my life. Hope you show these shots to your boys. :D

    Great moment and great capture. The depth of field is perfect, I love the way you can make out the top of the tree.

  • Thanks Alex. Have you ever seen this happening?
    It was actually hanging backwards and upside down, I took the shot from below :D
