And so :) preceded by this opening photograph ...

... here comes my first 3 S P E A K upload.

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

The Cicada is coming out of the old, larval exoskeleton after the metamorphosis ... early in the morning ... while various birds are singing in the background.
This is my first attempt at uploading here on 3SPEAK, hope I understood the procedure correctly ( which I usually never do at first attempt :) ) ... and I'll say a little atheist prayer in hope that whatever strange divinity not caring about who worships it or not is out there, makes everything go smoothly.

And :) that's it ...

... as always in these posts on HIVE, the photographs and the video are my work.


Why does it look so shrimp at first?

Because the new exoskeleton ( the external skeleton that looks like armor) is still soft and the wings are folded so don't look like wings at all, the insect is not completely formed and is very delicate.

Funny you should mention shrimp, a friend of mine from Thailand actually cooked a few of these and they actually taste like shrimp lol.

:D a cicada cooking post ... is coming soon ...

Trick is finding enough for a meal lol.


Aww cool you found one too, it almost looks like the 17 year cicadas but without the red eyes.

egg very interesting how much it is heard so much it is rarely seen especially when coming out of that metamorphosis

Very nice photos! I will have to look up 3 Speak vid!

I enjoyed the video a lot and I liked the little info-interventions, especially the blacky 😊😊
I am mesmerized by all this, I hope I won’t start waking up early looking for cicadas (you may want to check out my latest post for it includes an unusual fascinating insect, a purple faced crab spider)
Also, I liked the fact that you uploaded in 3speak, I may try it soon 😊😊

Congratulations @borjan, great job you're introducing us.

Thank you:)
