Hi, I live in Sandwich . We have thousands but it wasn’t until my hunt yesterday that I FINALLY found what I was looking for. I was in amazement! I thought I would share this picture with you.

Hi Renee,

What a cool photo of a Magicicada eclosing on a garden hose. These little guys will basically molt on any vertical surface.

Thanks for sharing your photo!
