Cicada Cocoon

Magicicada septendecim (cocoon)


In here I spotted a perfectly intact cicada cocoon hanging from a flower, it looks totally like if the cicada were still inside, all the limbs look detailed.


Tall Grass


I find this really astonishing, that a species leave its cocoon intact, it's difficult to me to spot one of these because people usually break them or they fall off the next day.
