Cicada skin/ Camisa ninfal de cigarra o chicharra



Cicadas live in temperate to tropical climates where they are among the most widely recognized of all insects, mainly due to their large size and unique sound. Male cicadas have loud noisemakers called "tymbals" on the sides of the abdominal base. Cicadas like heat and do their most spirited singing during the hotter hours of a summer day. They live underground as nymphs for most of their lives


Salinas de La Manga del Mar Menor, Cartagena (Spain)
