I was down in Ecuador this summer and I finally had a chance to go through my pictures. I feel lucky that I got to see not one, but two cicadas in the molting process and thought you might enjoy the pictures, especially during a season of mostly dormant insect activity.
Though we cannot identify these Cicadas to the species level, we are thrilled to post your stunning photos as excellent representatives of the universality of Cicada metamorphosis.
