Your letter to the bugman:  I found this alien on my cactus pot. It looks like it has antenna coming from the top and is about 1 inch wide. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Head of a Cicada

Dear Chris,
This is the head of a Cicada, and we have several images in our archives of decapitated Cicada heads.  Our best educated guess is that a bird or some other predator fed on the fatty body of the Cicada, and neglected to eat the hard and not especially nutritious head.
