Just beginning to emerge from its shell.

Drying its wings - its standing on top of the shell it just crawled out.

Lori, you are the cicada queen! Give me the heads up (about an hour before) and we want to rush over to see the next cicada happening...

Believe it or not I have never known what came out of those shells or why they shed the shells. I am going to show this to my kids though. They love collecting the shells like I did when I was a kid
