My wife noticed a cicada emerging from its shell tonight just before 10pm. Here are some pictures I took over about 1/2 an hour! So cool! (Note this cicada is unrelated to the 17-year brood currently active in the Northeast)

[Edited to add: I took one more photo at midnight, and by 1:00am it was gone, presumably climbed or flew to a safer location]
