Misc Pics

Avrie loves to go through the folded clothes before I put them away. She always finds Nolan's underwear. They make a good hat!
Here he is...Mr. Charmer. With a dirty face.
So, so strange. This is just a dried shell of a bug. He literally crawled out of his body. Anyone know what this is??
HUGE fly-like thing. Must have been the day for big bugs. The two were a foot apart.

Isn't that at cicada shell?

Is Cicada the same as a locust?

I didn't know we had cicadas here...thought that was a southern thing. So...why the empty shell?

I think it's a cicada. We always had them in IA. They grow new skin & crawl out of the old one - weird huh? Cool that you have a new foodie blog.

dragonflies also do the same thing. i've watched them crawl out of the shell, dry off and fly away.

Last year I saw a bunch of those hanging off a park building...but didn't realize they were just the shell. I sent Brooke all the way down to the park to have a look...and boy did I flip when she brought one back to my kitchen on a napkin!
