Are you sure that's alive?
It looks just like the cicada shells we find here all over trees, etc.

Yup. I tried to knock it off the post and it made that noise they make at night and climbed up the post. It's icky. At first I thought it was hollow but after that I didn't get any closer. There's still something in that shell.

We were given two hands to hold, two eyes to see, two ears to listen & two legs to walk. But why were we given only one heart?
The other heart was given to another for us to find.

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

I love cicadas. My youngest daughter collects the shells and names them all "Aladdin The Dead Bug duh-duh-duh-duuuuuh." Then she sticks them all over her shirt/hair and me and walks around singing to her "babies". It's really cute. It's fun watching them clamor out of their shells. Maybe we're just a little wierd. lol touched
