First death

cicadas…or, when the body left the body…

It’s again the time, when the young cicadas emerge their nymph skins to become fully adults, and the empty nymph skins are seen on tree trunks, grasses and under the benches. Here, in the Jardins de la Fontaine in Nîmes.

The nymph skins are surprisingly small, so first it’s difficult to notice them. In the photo on the right,  there are two skins. Can you find them? And above there are more, like the cicadas had been climbing up the tree…

So, now the singing of the cicadas gets even louder? Well, that’s the sound of summer!
